This project would increase diversity of forbs and invertebrates in riparian and transitional riparian/upland areas through mowing and seeding of native forb species. A tractor powered mower with a seeder would be used to create an enhanced vegetative mosaic within riparian or transitional riparian areas lacking in vegetative species and structural diversity. A contractor would provide a tractor or seeder for distribution of native seed. This project would focus on improving habitat for a diversity of species, particularly sage grouse and other BLM sensitive avian species such as the Brewer's sparrow and sage thrasher, which rely on riparian habitats for critical brood rearing requirements in the Sand Hills ACEC...

This project is an ongoing cooperative project to restore 6,300 feet of Battle Creek and replace two irrigation structures which currently block seasonal fish migration. This joint project will improve native Colorado Cutthroat fish habitat, improve thermal and low flow habitat, and reduce bank erosion. Restoration will include narrowing the channel to accommodate for 590 cfs bankfull flows; excavating pools and installing fish-hook vane structures to improve low flow trout habitat; and re-establishing riparian vegetation to prevent further erosion. At a minimum, the project will include the following: installing 10 fish-hook vanes, excavating 12 pools, installing bank full benches to narrow the channel, installing...
The restoration project constructed a low level dike, headwall, and head-gate at the mouth of the irrigation ditch to move the river back into its original channel. Phase II– The Sweetwater River jumped into an existing irrigation ditch creating a shortened braided channel (3,200 ft) and dewatering the historic single thread channel of 4,958 ft. The steepened channel created a head-cut in the main channel, causing channel incision and severe bank instability throughout the project area. The restoration project constructed a low level dike, headwall, and head-gate at the mouth of the irrigation ditch to move the river back into its original channel. Project completed August 2008. Approximately 12,100 ft of channel...

The objective of this project is to reduce streambank erosion and restore aquatic habitat. The project involves habitat enhancement and improve grazing management along one mile of river. The project involves construction of approximately 1-mile of 3 strand barbed-wire fence along a stretch of the Little Snake River on NFS lands. The fence would meet forest plan standards which allow wildlife movement. One watergap may be incorporated into the fence if needed for livestock watering. Project is located on the Little Snake River in Carbon County, WY approximately three miles below the Three Forks Ranch in T12N, R86W Sec 18 and T12N, R87W, Sec 13. Update: The fence was built by NFS personnel in September, 2009....
Invasive weed treatments in the Ferris Mountain Wilderness Study Area (WSA) and adjacent Hogback ridges. Monitoring in 2005 showed actual infestation into the WSA for the first time, along with marked increase of acres infested along the fringes in this wildlife-rich WSA. These weeds are also increasing in the adjacent hogback ridges. This area is rugged and scenic with few access points. Treatment consists of herbicide application to control weeds. Retention of native vegetation benefits crucial winter habitat for bighorn sheep, sage-grouse, and other native wildlife. 2009 Update: We reported 400 acres treated, most of that was photo monitored with current patch information collected to show trend. Additional...
