Summary: Most purchasers of timber from BLM-managed lands use both federal and private roads to haul the timber. In such instances, the timber sale contract with the BLM requires the purchaser to pay private landowners for the use and/or maintenance of their roads. These fees represent the BLM’s share of road construction and maintenance costs under reciprocal right-of-way agreements between the BLM and private landowners. See 43 U.S.C. 1762; 43 CFR subpart 2812. This information collection is a report that timber sale purchasers submit to the BLM to show that they have paid the fees required by their timber sale contracts. The BLM uses the report to ensure compliance with the timber sale contract, and to amortize road construction and maintenance costs among several road users. Frequency of Collection: On occasion.

This collection will encourage the public to collect data relevant to goal 1b: ‘‘The National Park Service contributes to knowledge about natural and cultural resources and associated values; management decisions about resources and visitors are based on adequate scholarly and scientific information’’. This collection is also consistent with the NPS Management Policies (2006), which emphasize the ‘‘use of qualitative and quantitative techniques to monitor key aspects of resources and processes at regular intervals’’ and furthermore state that ‘‘studies, research, and collection activities by non-NPS personnel involving natural and cultural resources will be encouraged and facilitated when they otherwise comport with NPS policies.’’ More specifically, the goal of this collection is to engage the public in documenting the timing of biological events (‘‘phenology’’) for a variety of species at numerous different locations. The data collected will help the NPS document how climate change is affecting the timing of biological events such as migration, flowering, and autumn foliage. The proposed Internet- and paperbased surveys will ask the public to participate in the collection of these data on NPS lands. With sufficient participation, NPS will obtain critical information for determining trends in the timing of biological events for many species. In addition to documenting changes in timing of events, the data set will facilitate the identification of species most at risk from climate change and anthropogenic influences. Survey participants will provide their contact information and multiple observations of species at one or more sites. The contact information will be used for quality control and (at the request of the participant) to provide data summaries or reports and information about additional opportunities for assisting with NPS research and monitoring activities. The obligation to respond is voluntary. Automated Data Collection: The information will be collected through an Internet site, as well as through paper forms available at public locations.

the public to collect data relevant to goal 1b: ``The National Park 
Service contributes to knowledge about natural and cultural resources 
and associated values; management decisions about resources and 
visitors are based on adequate scholarly and scientific information''. 
This collection is also consistent with the NPS Management Policies

techniques to monitor key aspects of resources and processes at regular 
intervals'' and furthermore state that ``studies, research, and 
collection activities by non-NPS personnel involving natural and

otherwise comport with NPS policies.'' More specifically, the goal of 
this collection is to engage the public in documenting the timing of 
biological events (``phenology'') for a variety of species at numerous 
different locations. The data collected will help the NPS document how 
climate change is affecting the timing of biological events such as
