Corral Creek Pasture/South Hay Creek (Dog Mountain) Division Fence

The proposed project is a one mile fence to exclude the South Fork of Hay Creek not within the S. Hay Creek Riparian Pasture from use while cattle are on the Corral Springs pasture of the Dog Mountain Allotment.

Dead Horse and Campbell Lakes and Campgrounds Fences

To exclude livestock from Dead Horse Lake/Campground and Campbell Lake/Campground, we will construct wooden fences and install cattle guards at roads and hiker gates at trails. Where possible we may also fell dead trees to block livestock access.

Dry Prairie Spring Excavation

The Forest Service proposes to allow the permittee of the Yainax Butte Allotment to excavate the identified springs to find water and develop a water system off the spring to provide water to the cattle on the south end of the Dry Prairie pasture.

Forest Plan Amendments for the Pacific Connector Gas Pipeline

South Warner Habitat Restoration Project

To improve wildlife habitat conditions and increase the forest resilience to disturbance events on approximately 69,567 acres through small tree thinning, prescribed fire, aspen/mountain mahogany/meadow enhancement, and stream restoration.

Thomas Creek Guard Station Demolition and Hazardous Materials Disposal

The Thomas Creek Guard Station off NFS Road 28 was shut down around 1989 and is run down/lacking an adequate water source. Due to the condition of the facility, the Forest Supervisor marked it for demolition to reduce its physical footprint.
