Project Synopsis: BLM Kemmerer Field Office (KFO) proposes to construct riparian exclosures within the “Sage” sage-grouse core area as designated by the Wyoming Governor’s Executive Order (EO 2011-5). During late summer, fall and early winter of 2011 the BLM mapped and inventoried approximately 190 reservoirs and 50 springs/seeps in the Ruby Priority Project area. After compiling 2011 data, the BLM identified several springs/seeps as priorities for protection/enhancement. The springs/seeps are repeatedly grazed to the extent that hummocks are forming or have already formed. Once hummocks form or start to form, the immediate threat is a high soil compaction which could result in a lower water table, the spring/seep...

This project will provide sanitation and thinning of about 50 acres in 2010 (approximately 250 acres total through 2014) to enhance the white bark pine stand on Commissary Ridge, which is the southernmost white bark pine stand in Wyoming. The area has mature and young stands of white bark and limber pine. The mature trees have extensive 70+% mountain pine beetle infestation with a new infection of white pine blister rust. The project would remove diseased white bark and limber pine reduce the spread of mountain pine beetle and white pine blister rust to enable the younger aged cohorts to survive. FHP report has been done. White bark pine is an important tree species for wildlife. The area has mature and young stands...

Project Synopsis: Raven control (removal) efforts of varying intensity have been carried out around lambing grounds in Lincoln, Sweetwater, Uinta, and Carbon counties in Wyoming by United States Department of Agriculture/Wildlife Services (WS). This has provided a unique opportunity to study the potential effects of raven removal on sage-grouse nest success. Increased anthropogenic development (energy development and urbanization) may have a negative impact on sage-grouse nesting success and productivity as a result of increased raven populations and raven depredation of sage-grouse nests. Structures associated with anthropogenic development may provide perches that ravens need to forage or ravens may be drawn...
