Blue Mountain Forest Plan Revision
This newsletter provides updates on our ongoing efforts to revise the Blue Mountains Forest Plans for the Malheur, Umatilla, and Wallowa-Whitman National Forests. Key topics in the newsletter include:
- Why and how does the Forest Service manage livestock grazing on National Forest lands?
- Why do the Blue Mountains Forest Plans address livestock grazing?
- In the two Modified Alternatives, what changed? How many acres are proposed as suitable for livestock grazing, and what are the proposed Animal Unit Months?
- How will the Forest Plans incorporate the best-available science for livestock grazing and watershed condition?
- What are the proposed Standards and Guidelines for livestock grazing and grazing-land vegetation in riparian areas?
