PURPOSE: The implementation of a fish and wildlife management plan, including components for federally protected species, for the area of the Pacific Northwest affected by actions of the Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) is considered. The plan would affect British Columbia and the states of Arizona, California, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming. BPA supplies roughly half of the electricity consumed in the Northwest. The marketed power is generated primarily by 31 federal hydroelectric projects (known collectively as the Federal Columbia River Power System) as well as from one non-federal nuclear plant. Despite the efforts of the BPA and other regional entities in the...

PURPOSE: The exchange of lands between the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) and Doyon, Limited is proposed to enhance the Yukon Flats National Wildlife Refuge of Alaska. Since the refuge was established in 1980, Doyon has been interested in acquiring federal oil and gas interests in the south-central portion of dedicated area. Under the terms of an agreement in principle between the FWS and Doyon, the U.S. government would receive fee title to at least 150,000 acres of Doyon lands, including both surface and subsurface rights, with priority fish and wildlife habitats that can be incorporated into the refuge. Doyon would receive fee title to approximately 110,000 acres of refuge lands, including both surface...

The Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the Shadura Natural Gas Development Project is available for public review. The EIS was prepared pursuant to the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act of 1980 (ANILCA); the National Wildlife Refuge System Administration Act of 1966 (Refuge Administration Act), as amended by the National Wildlife Refuge System Improvement Act of 1997 (Refuge Improvement Act); and the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA). It describes five alternatives for accessing the subsurface natural gas estate owned by Cook Inlet Region, Inc. (CIRI), and provides analysis of the effects of those alternatives. The Service does not have a preferred alternative. DATES: Following...

"Identifies three alternatives for enhancing wildlife viewing, environmental education, interpretation, photography, and other non-conflicting wildlife-dependent recreation opportunities throughout the 44,000 acre Skilak Wildlife Recreation Area. It also presents our evaluation of the environmental consequences associated with implementing each of the alternatives. The final version of this plan will guide future management of the Skilak Wildlife Recreation Area"--Transmittal letter.

Pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (42 U.S.C. 4332(C)), and the Wilderness Act of 1964 (16 U.S.C. 1131 et seq.), the National Park Service (NPS) is preparing an environmental impact statement for a general management plan amendment, including a wilderness study, for Lake Clark National Park and Preserve, Alaska. Public scoping will begin in Spring 2011 via a newsletter to state and federal agencies; associated American Indian tribes; associated Native corporations; neighboring communities; borough commissioners; local organizations, researchers and institutions; the congressional delegation; and other interested members of the public.

The Resource Stewardship Strategy 2008 - 2027 (RSS) provides strategic guidance for the research, resource management, and resource education programs of the National Park Service at Denali National Park and Preserve. The RSS is a program planning document that serves as a bridge between the qualitative statements of desired conditions established in the park General Management Plan (GMP) and the measurable goals and implementation actions determined through park strategic planning. The RSS is not a decision-making document. It is an analytical document that focuses on identifying and tracking indicators of desired conditions, recommending comprehensive strategies to achieve and maintain desired conditions over...

PURPOSE: The implementation of a revised comprehensive conservation plan for the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge of Alaska is proposed. The plan, which would perpetuate or replace the currently in force 1985 management plan, would guide management of the refuge for the next 15 years. The 1.32-million-acre refuge, which lies on the Kenai Peninsula along the Turnagain Arm and Cook Inlet, has been described as "Alaska in miniature" with reference to its cross-section of Alaskan habitats. Key issues identified during scoping include those related to large-scale habitat changes and the use of fire, management of existing facilities for public use while ensuring natural resource protection, enhancement of wildlife-dependent...

PURPOSE: The review and revision of the Comprehensive Conservation Plan (CCP) for the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (Arctic NWR) in northeastern Alaska is proposed. Originally established in 1960 as Arctic National Wildlife Range, Arctic NWR encompasses 19.3 million acres of land and water, including eight million acres of designated wilderness and three wild and scenic rivers (Ivishak, Sheenjek, and Wind rivers). At least 48 species of mammals are present at Arctic NWR, including several high-profile and special-status species: polar and grizzly bears, wolf, wolverine, Dalls sheep, moose, muskox, beluga whale, and two free-roaming caribou herds. At least 42 species of fish inhabit Refuge waters and more than...

PURPOSE: Implementation of an off-road vehicle (ORV) management plan for the Nabesna District of Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve, Alaska is proposed. The 13.2-million-acre park and preserve includes the largest contiguous area of designated wilderness in the United States. Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve protects braided glacial river systems, including the Copper, Chitina, Bremner, Nebesna, White, and Chisana rivers, but is also an inhabited area where local communities and traditional human activities remain integrated with the wilderness setting. The history of ORV use in the Nabesna District predates the establishment of the park and an established trail network is used for recreation...
