Æ Drafting for water would not occur in streams that are occupied by steelhead. • Twenty-five water developments would be reconstructed and associated springs would be protected as needed. • Two water developments would be removed and their sites restored to a natural state. • Existing aspen stands identified in the field would be protected and enhanced through conifer thinning and utilization of thinned materials, prescribed fire, and mechanical treatment. Exclosures may be used when thinning and placement of thinned materials to protect aspens stands is not found to provide adequate protection. • Juniper up to 12″ diameter would be mechanically thinned and/or thinned by prescribed fire. • An approximately 2-acre aspen stand would be enhanced and protected through conifer thinning and utilization of thinned materials, prescribed fire and mechanical treatment. Exclosures may be used when thinning and placement of thinned materials to protect aspens stands is not found to provide adequate protection. • Bedding/camping areas would be monitored for known Taeniatherum caput-medusae (medusahead) populations. Trailing routes onto the allotment would be identified for listed non-native invasive plants. • Riparian restoration activities would take place where necessary on 4.5 miles of Little McKay Creek and tributaries; activities would include instream placement of wood and/or rock structures, filling and connecting floodplains, planting hardwoods, and creating physical barriers (such as wood, rock or fences) to protect hardwoods and improve bank stability, conifer thinning to improve RHCA stand conditions and utilization of thinning materials for in-stream placement and improved bank stability. Wood and physical barrier material may come from on-site. • An alternative grazing plan would be included to have two total grazing plans that can be alternated. Possible Alternatives In addition to the Proposed Action and any alternative that is developed following this scoping effort, the project interdisciplinary team will analyze the effects of: VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:47 Feb 27, 2014 Jkt 232001 • No Action alternative: No grazing permits would be reauthorized; cattle would be removed from all allotments within two years. • Current management alternative: Permits would be reauthorized at current levels; there would be no new water developments, no riparian restoration, and there would be no requirement for permittees to move livestock out of sensitive areas, except as required by current permits.

Responsible Official ACTION: The responsible official will be District Ranger, Lookout Mountain Ranger District, Ochoco National Forest, 3160 NE Third Street, Prineville, Oregon 97754. SUMMARY: 11393 Nature of Decision To Be Made Given the purpose and need, the deciding official will review the proposed action, the other alternatives, and the environmental consequences in order to make the following decisions: • Whether and under what circumstances grazing will be reauthorized in the Bear Creek, Elkhorn, Snowshoe, and Trout Creek allotments. • Whether and under what circumstances range improvements will be constructed. • Whether and under what circumstances riparian restoration activities will be implemented. Preliminary Issues Preliminary issues identified include the potential effect of the proposed action on livestock grazing, heritage resources, fisheries, water quality, sensitive plants, and on the introduction and/or spread of invasive plants, as well as the cumulative effects of the proposed action where the effects of associated activities overlap with the effects of other management activities. Scoping Process Public comments about this proposal are requested in order to assist in identifying issues, determining how to best manage the resources, and focusing the analysis. Comments received to this notice, including names and addresses of those who comment, will be part of the public record for this proposed action.
