Each refuge in the NWRS has specific purposes for which it was established. Those purposes are used to develop and prioritize management goals and objectives within the NWRS mission and to guide which public uses will occur on a given refuge. The planning process will consider many elements, including wildlife and habitat management, habitat protection and acquisition, wilderness preservation, public recreational activities, and cultural resource protection. Public input into the planning process is essential. The planning process is a way for the Service and the public to evaluate refuge management goals and objectives for the best possible conservation efforts of this important wildlife habitat. Concurrently, this process is also providing for wildlife-dependent recreation opportunities that are compatible with each refuge’s establishing purposes and the mission of the NWRS. Trinity River National Wildlife Refuge is located in Liberty County, Texas, and encompasses 22,000 acres of bottomland hardwood forest along a portion of the Trinity River in southeastern Texas. The Refuge, which is a remnant of what was once a much larger natural area is a broad, flat floodplain made up of numerous sloughs, oxbows lakes, artesian wells, and tributaries. The CCP will provide other agencies and the public with a clear understanding of the desired conditions for the Refuge and how the Service will implement management strategies for the conservation and development of these natural resources. The Service, through this notice of intent, formally begins the comprehensive conservation planning process for Trinity River National Wildlife Refuge. The Service requests input on any and all issues concerning management or public recreation. Comments regarding the protection of threatened and/or endangered species, migratory birds, native species, and their habitats are encouraged. The Service has provided the above questions for optional use only. Comments received will be used as part of the planning process. Individual comments will not be referenced in our reports or directly responded to. The Service will continue to solicit information from the public and other agencies via open houses, meetings, and written comments. Special mailings, newspaper releases, and announcements will continue to inform VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:37 Aug 09, 2007 Jkt 211001 people of the time and place of opportunities for further input to the CCP. Review of this project will be conducted in accordance with the National Environmental Policy act of 1968, as amended (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.), NEPA Regulations (40 CFR parts 1500–1508) found at http:// www.thecrecom/fedlaw/default.htm, other appropriate Federal laws, and Service policies and procedures for compliance with those regulations. The Service will prepare an Environmental Assessment (EA) in accordance with procedures for implementing NEPA found in the Department of the Interior Manual (DM Part 516, Chap 6). The decision to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement instead of an EA would be contingent upon the complexity of issues following the scoping phase of the CCP process. We estimate that the draft environmental documents will be available in fall 2009 for public review and comment.

ACTION: Notice of Availability. AGENCY: SUMMARY: In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act, the Federal Land Policy and Management Act, and the Revested Oregon and California Railroad and Reconveyed Coos Bay Wagon Road Grant Lands Act (O&C Lands Act), the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has prepared a Draft Resource Management Plan/Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DRMP/DEIS) to revise selected portions of the 1995 Resource Management Plans (RMPs) for six BLM districts in western Oregon. These revisions will address the sustained yield timber production provisions of the O&C Lands Act as well as resource protection provisions of the Endangered Species Act and the Clean Water Act. The alternatives in the DRMP/DEIS also comply with the 2003 settlement agreement between the Secretary of the Interior and the American Forest Resource Council (AFRC, et al v. Clarke). DATES: The 90-day public comment period on the DRMP/DEIS will begin the date the Environmental Protection Agency publishes their Notice of Availability (NOA) in the Federal Register. Comments must be received on or before the end of the comment PO 00000 Frm 00057 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 period at the address listed below. Public meetings to gather comments on the DRMP/DEIS will be held in a number of locations throughout the western Oregon planning area. Public meetings and any other public involvement activities will be announced at least 15 days in advance through public notices, media news releases, newsletter mailings, and on the Western Oregon Plan Revisions Web site at: www.blm.gov/or/plans/wopr/ index.php.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Alan Hoffmeister, Western Oregon Plan Revisions Public Outreach Coordinator; telephone (503) 808–6629; or e-mail: orwopr@or.blm.gov SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The DRMP/DEIS for the Revision of Resource Management Plans of the Western Oregon BLM Districts has developed and analyzed four alternatives (including the No Action Alternative) for managing approximately 2,550,000 acres of Federal land, mostly revested Oregon and California Railroad and Coos Bay Wagon Road Grant lands, within the Western Oregon planning area. BLM has analyzed revision of six RMPs with this single EIS. The RMPs being revised are the Salem, Eugene, Roseburg, Medford, and Coos Bay District RMPs and the Klamath Falls Resource Area RMP in the Lakeview District. Public comments received during scoping played an important role in shaping the alternatives, which are described and analyzed in the DRMP/ DEIS. The No Action Alternative maintains the decisions in the existing RMPs. Alternative One creates latesuccessional management areas similar to the large late-successional reserves in the no action alternative, applies new criteria for designating the width of riparian management areas, and provides for intensive forest management on other areas. Alternative Two designates late successional management areas based on habitat requirements for the northern spotted owl and marbled murrelet, E:\FR\FM\10AUN1.SGM 10AUN1
