North Fork Calawah Vegetation Management Project
Vegetation management (timber harvest) and restoration treatments on 4,000 acres to accelerate development of late-successional forest habitat conditions for wildlife and watershed health, and to contribute to local economies.
Olympic National Park Mountain Goat Management Plan
Non-native mountain goat removal to address resource and safety issues on the Olympic Peninsula. Goats could be removed from the Olympic National Park and Forest. Goats could be translocated to Mount Baker-Snoqualmie and Okanagon-Wenatchee NFs.

Rayonier Fahnestock Access
Permit Rayonier to reconstruct approximately 400 ft of road and construct another 800 ft to access private timber land. Total right-of-way length would be 1292 ft by 60 ft in width. Total acreage would be 1.7 acres.
Commercially variable density thin (thinning, heavy thinning, gaps up to two acres in size, and skips) up to 70 harvest acres, to be achieved through a timber sale/stewardship contract (uneven-aged harvesting).
Sell property that is surplus to Forest Service needs. The property contains a number of structures\improvements, including but not limited to two residences.
Rocky Brook Hydroelectric Permit Renewal
Rocky Brook Hydroelectric Limited Partnership is seeking a new 20-year special use permit for their existing facilities. The project diverts up to 40 cubic feet per second (cfs) from Rocky Brook, with a minimum in-stream flow of 5 cfs.
Trapper Creek Aquatic Organism Passage
The existing culvert on Forest Road 2850 at the Trapper Creek crossing (MP 0.8), would be replaced with a structure designed to allow passage for all aquatic organisms. Structures made of rock and wood may be incorporated in the design.
