The Forest Service proposes two prescribed burns at Weiner Creek (1,500 acres) and Lower Cottonwood Creek (400 acres) to restore aspen habitat in one of the most important elk calving areas for the Afton herd and important for aspen-dependent species, transition and winter range for elk, mule deer, and moose east of Alpine, transition and winter range for mule deer and elk of crucial winter range just east of Smoot, and sagebrush, aspen, meadow, and willow habitat on transition range for mule deer and elk 30 miles up the Greys River.
Overview This project examines the ecological impacts of several introduced and expanding forest insects and diseases on forest habitats across the northeastern US and upper Lake States region. To address these novel threats, this work applies large-scale, co-developed experimental studies documenting impacts of ash mortality from emerald ash borer on lowland black ash communities in the Lake States and northern hardwood forests in New England; regional assessments of the impacts of the climate change-mediated expansion of southern pine beetle into northeastern pine barren communities; and ecological characterizations of areas experiencing suppression efforts to reduce the spread of the introduced Asian long-horned...
Proposal is to partially fence the Blair Creek Wildlife Habitat Area, Pinedale Ranger District, Bridger-Teton National Forest. The intent would be to utilize the area (approximatley 10,000 acres) for a forage reserve to be used as alternate/temporary forage for livestock moved from other areas undergoing habitat improvement projects. In addition, the unit presently has no fences and is experiencing unauthorized livestock use from adjacent BLM and FS lands. Livestock grazing would only occur outside the Bridger Wilderness portion of this unit. The Unit could provide approximately 2.5 months grazing for 150 cow/calf pairs. Habitat improvement projects would benefit a variety of species although elk and reduction...
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...
Understanding freshwater flow is frequently highlighted as a priority in land management planning and assessments. Changes in climate can impact streamflow through reduced snowpack and snowfall, earlier spring runoff, increased winter flow and flooding, and decreased summer flow. In Southeast Alaska, streamflow is expected to shift dramatically in response to changes in factors such as precipitation and air temperature. Understanding how streamflow might change is instrumental not only for predicting changes in plant distribution and soil moisture, but also for infrastructure planning. Culvert replacement, bridge design, hydropower development, water reservoir placement, and floodplain restoration planning all require...
