SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Purpose and Need for Action The purpose of the project is to: 1. Reduce the threat of wildfire to communities in the wildland urban interface while moving toward a diverse fire-resilient ecosystem. 2. Reduce overstocked, droughtstressed and dying trees to promote forest health. 3. Enhance early seral foraging and winter range habitat for deer and wild turkeys; and improve long-term habitat for northern spotted owl. 4. Maintain or improve habitat for Calochortus persistens, a Forest Service sensitive plant. 5. Limit the discharge of sediment to streams from sediment legacy sites to improve water quality. Proposed Action The proposed action was designed to meet the purpose and need for the project. A total of 10,700 acres is being proposed for treatment within the 29,500-acre project area. Strategic actions within project boundary will treat about 250 acres of the 1,190-acre defense zone and 3,870 acres within the 12,350-acre threat zone around the community of Yreka, California. Proposed treatments also include about 1,450 acres of fuel breaks along strategic road systems and ridges; 4,160 acres of prescribed burning; 860 acres of mastication to enhance wildlife habitat while reducing hazardous fuels; 1,350 PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Estimated average hours per response 0.5 0.5 Estimated total burden (hours) 330 330 acres of thinning (without the removal of Forest products); and 2,880 acres of thinning (with removal of Forest products).

    The purpose of the project is to:
    1. Reduce the threat of wildfire to communities in the wildland 
urban interface while moving toward a diverse fire-resilient ecosystem.
    2. Reduce overstocked, drought-stressed and dying trees to promote 
forest health.
    3. Enhance early seral foraging and winter range habitat for deer 
and wild turkeys; and improve long-term habitat for northern spotted 
owl.

sites to improve water quality.

Proposed Action

    The proposed action was designed to meet the purpose and need for 
the project. A total of 10,700 acres is being proposed for treatment 
within the 29,500-acre project area. Strategic actions within project 
boundary will treat about 250 acres of the 1,190-acre defense zone and 
3,870 acres within the 12,350-acre threat zone around the community of 
Yreka, California. Proposed treatments also include about 1,450 acres
