This project increases the level of control to minimize the economic and ecological impacts caused by invasive species. Controlling noxious weeds is a priority for the BLM and this collaborative effort with Sublette, Lincoln, and Teton Counties reinforces this commitment. The weed infested areas cover sage-grouse, snowshoe hare and lynx habitat, crucial winter range and calving range for mule deer, elk and moose. In addition, grazing allotments, oil and gas leases, adjacent lands (USFS, private, State), and prime recreational hunting areas are also greatly impacted. Integrated methods of weed control are applied, including the use of biological and chemical controls along with hand pulling in select areas. This...
This project involves the establishment of a 5.5 acre wetland for waterfowl and water bird habitat, including specific habitat developments for swans. Establishing secure, shallow water summer habitat is the most important management priority for swans in the upper Green River area.
The project and funding will be spread over a 5 year period beginning in 2008. The project will consist of controlling and eradicating Tamarix (Salt Cedar) along Muddy Creek, Blacksfork River, and their tributaries. The project will be labor intensive. The project will consist of individual spot treatments spraying of the seedling, young and mature salt cedar plants, and cutting (chain saw or other methods of cutting down) the larger mature salt cedar plants and swabbing the stumps with herbicides. Herbicides used need to be on the BLM approved chemical list and label followed for applications. The herbicides are most effective when a colorant is used to mark plants treated and a penetrating oil used with the herbicide....

This project is designed to restore aspen across a large landscape to healthy, vigorous conditions, establish a multi-age class diversity; and improve both wildlife habitat and grazing conditions, and reduce hazardous fuels across the landscape by removing flammable conifer in aspen stands. A variety of tactical mechanical methods to treat conifer trees that are encroaching on and out-competing aspen stands. Mechanical treatments are completed with prescribed fire. The project goal is to treat 9,000 acres over 10 years. Aspen is often classified a “keystone species” (Campbell and Bartos, 2001) and is often considered second to riparian and wetland communities as the most productive habitat for wildlife and plant...
This project involves both biological and herbicide control of tamarisk. It will benefit native plants, special status species, and wildlife. The implementation of this tamerisk control project will result in rehabilitation of degraded streams and riparian areas some of the treated riparian areas are important to maintain viable populations of Colorado River Cutthroat trout. Project includes participation from Sweetwater County, the Bureau of Land Management, and private landowners.
Strategies: a three-pronged approach will continue to be taken during the next three years, with WLCI funds primarily going toward the first "prong" (much of this in the Greys River drainage), and some funds going toward the second "prong": 1. Prevent the successful establishment of noxious weed species not yet established on National Forest System lands in the Greys River Ranger District. 2. Prevent the successful establishment of new infestations of spotted knapweed, leafy spurge, yellow toadflax, and Dyer’s woad beyond existing perimeters along roads, trails, and adjoining lands, and either eliminate existing patches or reduce the density of noxious weed densities to a point in which a native plant diversity...
Project Synopsis: the strategy for restoring the habitat on Currant Creek is to permanently exclude unauthorized livestock from the stream and adjacent meadows unless livestock are authorized in the special use pasture. Livestock are only to be permitted to graze every 3rd year for 3 weeks or as approved by authorized officer. (It's been about ten years since grazing has been authorized in the area due to resource concerns.) The most imminent threat to the currant creek habitat is continual cattle drift into the drainage. This results in the unauthorized grazing of riparian vegetation and BLM projects such as willow, aspen, and other woody species plantings. The area is important habitat (ACEC area) for Colorado...
Consistent with sound business practice and the Agency’s stewardship responsibilities, Reclamation is continuously striving to identify and apply advanced approaches allowing the operation of Reclamation hydropower plants in a more efficient manner—generating more electricity per acre-foot of water released. One of the challenges of efficient hydropower generation is the matter of setting short-term generation schedules from multiple sources. On at least an hourly basis, Reclamation’s power plant operators must determine the best combination of generator units to bring online, and at what levels, given the existing demand for electricity and other operating costs and constraints. This is known as the economic dispatch...
This project will involve prescribed burning 6546 acres (approximately half black) in a mosaic pattern in the Pole Creek area to improve upland plant communities, and aspen stands by removing conifer cover to help sustain aspen habitat by promoting suckering and removing competition by conifers to increase productivity and browse. The project includes a special emphasis on improvement of the age class and diversity of plant communities. Historically, some of this area has been classified as transitional and year long range for mule deer, elk, moose, and antelope. Healthy aspen, mountain shrub, grassland/forb and riparian communities are important parturition and fawn rearing areas for big game. By improving this...
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....
Constructing 4,800 feet of wildlife passable fence to exclude livestock for 3 years with the development of a long term wildlife and livestock management plan.
Columbia Plateau irrigation canals & ditches raster layer geodatabase. Also included is the source vector polygon.

The project involves the recordation and management of a large archaeological complex surrounding Chicken Springs. The site has evidence of long term use and appears remain important to Native American tribes as a traditional cultural property at which ceremonies appear to be ongoing. The site has competing uses being along an access corridor to a developing gas field and having extensive recreational and tourism visitation. The project will record the resource and develop a management plan which will enhance the health of the lands in the area while managing increased demand for minerals and recreation. This project would meet the cultural requirements and also provide a management plan that could include consideration...
This project will improve fish movements in the Upper Big Sandy River by fish screen and fish passable irrigation diversion replacement.
Construct wildlife passable fence to enhance approximately 3,100 feet of riparian habitat and 5,900 feet of stream channel. Three year rest minimum with the development of a long term wildlife and livestock management plan.
Use hand crews to reduce conifer competition with aspen in inaccessible areas of upper Red Creek.
This project will take place on Rock Creek which is a tributary to Bear River. This project involves the replacement of four irrigation diversions with fish passable weir structures to benefit native fish species.
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 enclosures would protect the Buckhorn Flowing Well (NWNE Sec.9 T24N-R109W) and the riparian/wetland areas it created from the overflow of the well in the Eighteen Mile Allotment. The enclosures would help improve habitat/vegetation/cover (provide brood-rearing habitat for sage grouse), place for wildlife to water, exclusion from livestock and wild horses. The reservoir will still be accessible for livestock and wild horses to water. This project will add a healthy wetland component to the sagebrush ecosystem, improving edge and diversity. The priority for getting done first on this project would be is to protect the water well. Place a small exclosure around the water well to keep wild horses and livestock...
