In 2006/2007 the Adobetown Herd Management Area (HMA) was rounded up to bring the HMA to its Appropriate Management Level (AML). Given that the HMA is now at AML, a suite of projects have been identified that will improve wildhorse and livestock distribution, rangeland health, and reduce wildhorse movement outside the HMA. The majority of livestock use in this area includes winter sheep, and water development is lacking throughout the HMA. Six miles of pipeline, a number of short pipelines, troughs and supplies for several water wells are proposed. An existing network of pipelines and troughs could be rehabilitated with the purchase and installation of a large solar pump. Four spring developments and small pits...
This project would increase the diversity and abundance of forbs and invertebrates in riparian and transitional riparian/upland areas. Treatments would include physical manipulation through mowing, imprinting, or just interseeding to create an enhanced vegetative mosiac within riparian or transitional riparian areas lacking in vegetative species and structural diversity. Since there are a number of invasives/exotic plants in the area, the area will be treated before seeding to ensure the natives species have an advantage. Mechanical manipulation for seed bed preparation, seeding of native seeds and control of invasives/exotic plants will be handled through contracts. This project focuses on improving habitat for...
A combination of efforts has been ongoing to understand the invasive mechanisms of this plant (Desert Alyssum) to spread and how to control it. A chemical application will be used in an effort to gain control of Desert Alyssum. This area has crucial winter range for antelope, deer and elk, and also has sage grouse wintering areas, brood-rearing habitat, as well as numerous leks. This funding would benefit the immediate area through the inventory and removal of Desert Alyssum which is competing with native vegetation. Monitoring transects have shown an increase in perennial plant spacing where Alyssum is dominant. Removal of Alyssum would improve or maintain habitat for wildlife and livestock using this area. Several...
The project will conduct several different forms of forest and rangeland health treatments to improve and restore good health conditions in aspen woodlands and rangelands on roughly between 700,000 to 750,000 acres located in the southwestern portion of Rawlins, WY. The goal is to implement a combination of treatments (mechanical removal of confier encroachment in aspen stands, prescribed burning, hazardous fuels reduction and mechanical brush beating) within identified areas of forest and rangelands within the project area to improve aspen stand, rangeland vegetation, and riparian ecosystem health; improve livestock grazing and wildlife habitat conditions; and reduce hazardous fire fuel build-up within juniper...
Convert impenetrable sheep fence to more "wildlife friendly" fence to allow passage of pronghorn and other big game species. Provide a number of low-tech erosion and water harvesting measures to improve two-track roads. Construct small rock mulches to improve water infiltration while reducing runoff and soil erosion. With the assistance of the Wyoming Youth Conservation Corp, conduct fence repair and reconstruction. Plant willow and other shrubs. This project would increase the amount and diversity of riparian and transitional riparian/upland habitats. Establishment and expansion of woody species such as willow in riparian areas would provide increased fish stream shading, and armoring of stream banks from erosion....

The Sand Creek Saltcedar control project is designed to treat approximately thirty (30) miles of stream bottom in the Colorado River Watershed for saltcedar invasion. Treatment will consist of aerial and ground application of herbicide to remove saltcedar from the area. This is potentially threatened Western yellow-billed cuckoo habitat which is being severely degraded with invasive saltcedar. It is also home to wild horses, deer, elk, antelope, and many other wildlife species, as well as one of the headwaters of many sensitive fish species downstream. This project will directly reduce water wastage, erosion and sedimentation, and salt loading into the Little Snake River, a tributary to the Colorado River. This...
The Hay Reservoir project entails treating approximately 3000 acres for Russian knapweed and salt cedar invasion. Treatment would consist of the ground application of herbicide to control these noxious weeds in the area. There is also whitetop, Canada thistle, black henbane, halogeton, and Swainson’s pea. This area is important to deer, elk, antelope, and many other wildlife species. This project will directly reduce water wastage, erosion, and sedimentation into Hay Reservoir, located in the Great Divide Basin. It will also benefit Red Creek and Hay Reservoir proper, native vegetation, and the wildlife which use the water in this drainage. This area has also failed Standards for Healthy Rangelands due to the invasive...
The Rawlins Fence Conversions is a continuation of the Muddy Creek and WY Youth Conservation Crew fencing conversion completed in 2008. This project also compliments the Grizzly WHMA Fence Conversion Project and the Red Rim WHMA Improvement Project by removing impenetrable sheep fence and converting it to “wildlife friendly” fence. This large-scale conversion is necessary to maintain migration corridors and provide access to good habitat, especially as these herds face increasing bottlenecks from oil and gas development or during severe winter weather. Since over half of crucial winter range occurs in mixed land ownership, partnering with permittees and other private landowners are critical to complete fence...
Populations of Colorado River cutthroat trout (CRCT) have experienced dramatic declines throughout their historic range. Current distributions of CRCT are typically limited to isolated headwater streams and lakes. Primary threat to the CRCT is the introduction of non-native salmonids and loss of habitat. A fish barrier on Dirtyman Creek was placed on BLM administered lands to prevent invasion of non-native salmonids and maintain a genetically pure population of Colorado River cutthroat trout. However, the existing structure has degraded over time and needs to be replaced before the integrity of the barrier is lost. The goal of this project is to prevent non-native fish from invading upstream of the existing barrier...
