ACTION: Notice of availability. AGENCY: In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, as amended, and the Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976, as amended, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has prepared a Final Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for Domestic Sheep Grazing Permit Renewals in the Gunnison Field Office and by this notice is announcing its availability. DATES: The BLM will not issue a final decision on the proposal for a minimum of 30 days after the date that the Environmental Protection Agency publishes its Notice of Availability in the Federal Register. The BLM will issue a proposed decision, followed by a 15-day protest period and a 30-day appeal period for the final decision.

The FRS is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to leave a message or question. You will receive a reply during normal business hours. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The BLM Gunnison Field office is proposing to renew the permits on nine domestic sheep grazing allotments, totaling 65,710 acres in Gunnison, Hinsdale and Ouray counties in Colorado. In 2015, the BLM published a Notice of Intent to prepare an EIS, initiating public scoping to identify issues through public participation and collaboration with partners. Initial scoping with internal staff, cooperating agencies, and the public identified the risk of contact and disease transmission between domestic sheep and Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep as the primary issue. Additional issues identified during scoping included potential impacts to threatened and endangered species, local and regional economics, cultural resources, Native American religious concerns, and public land health. The purpose of the action is to determine whether or not to authorize domestic sheep or goat grazing on nine BLM allotments, such that domestic sheep or goat grazing is in compliance with the Gunnison Resource Area Resource Management Plan, as amended, and BLM policy. The need for the action is to respond to permit applications for the nine allotments. The BLM published a Notice of Availability on June 28, 2019, announcing the public comment period for the draft EIS (84 FR 31088). The draft EIS included alternatives that responded to the purpose and need, reduced the risk of contact and disease transmission, made progress in achieving land health standards, met objectives of the Canada Lynx Conservation Assessment and Strategy, and met the habitat and management guidelines of the Candidate Conservation Agreement for Gunnison Sage-Grouse and the draft Recovery Plan for Gunnison Sage-Grouse. The Draft EIS was available for a 45-day public comment period. The BLM hosted public meetings on July 17 and 18, 2019, in Montrose and Lake City, CO, respectively. The BLM received 31 comment submissions. Alternatives analyzed in the EIS include the Proposed Action generated by the permittee applications. This alternative would provide grazing on nine allotments. Alternative B is the noaction alternative and would continue current management. Alternative C emphasizes a reduction in the risk of PO 00000 Frm 00038 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 contact between domestic sheep/goats and Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep by not authorizing domestic sheep/goat grazing in pastures that overlap with Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep summer range. Alternative D emphasizes reduction of risk by not authorizing domestic sheep/goat grazing in the overall range of Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep. Alternative E is the nograzing alternative. The BLM completed a risk of contact model for each of the action alternatives to aid in analyzing the potential levels of sheep interaction. The BLM did not identify a preferred alternative in the Draft EIS but has identified a preferred alternative in the Final EIS, as required by Council on Environmental Quality regulations. The BLM has identified Alternative C as the preferred alternative. Alternative C applies new Terms and Conditions and eliminates domestic sheep/goat grazing in Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep summer range, providing additional spatial and temporal separation of the species. The BLM considered comments on the Draft EIS received from the public and internal BLM review, and made changes in the Final EIS as appropriate. Public comments resulted in the addition of clarifying text and correction of data discrepancies in the EIS, but did not significantly change the alternatives.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Notice is here given in accordance with the 
Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA), 25 
U.S.C. 3005, of the intent to repatriate cultural items under the

History and Description of the Cultural Items

    In an unknown time, 469 cultural items were removed from unknown 
sites in Oswego, Onondaga, Cayuga, Madison, Wayne, and St. Lawrence 
Counties, NY. These items were recovered as part of years of field 
schools and projects run by Peter Pratt in central NY while he was 
teaching at SUNY Oswego, and were transferred at an unknown time to 
SUNY Oswego. The 469 unassociated funerary objects are one effigy 
vessel; two soil samples; 30 plain and decorated incised pottery body 
sherds; four charcoal samples; one clay/daub; five unidentified faunal 
bones; one ground stone; one charcoal sample; 225 plain and decorated 
incised pottery body and rim sherds; two unidentified lithics; two 
unidentified faunal bones; one ground stone hand axe; 57 plain and 
decorated incised pottery rim and body sherds; 27 unidentified faunal 
bones; seven chert flakes and shatter; 53 plain and decorated incised 
pottery rim and body sherds; 28 plain and decorated incised pottery rim 
and body sherds; 11 miscellaneous lithics including groundstone, 
shatter, and preforms; one pottery pipe and refitted pieces; five 
pottery pipes; one effigy head pottery pipe; one effigy pottery pipe; 
and three pottery pipe parts.
    Based on the history of Peter Pratt's research program and the 
provenience of the materials recovered from his multiple decades of 
excavation in central NY, these items were more likely than not 
recovered via local donations made during one of his excavations within 
Oneida, Onondaga, and Cayuga sites, as this was a common feature of his 
field school materials.

Determinations Made by the State University of New York at Oswego

    Officials of the State University of New York at Oswego have 
determined that:
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(3)(B), the 469 cultural items 
described above are reasonably believed to have been placed with or 
near individual human remains at the time of death or later as part of 
the death rite or ceremony and are believed, by a preponderance of the 
evidence, to have been removed from a specific burial site of a Native 
American individual.
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(2), there is a relationship of 
shared group identity that can be reasonably traced between the 
unassociated funerary objects and the Cayuga Nation; Oneida Indian 
Nation (previously listed as the Oneida Nation of New York); and the 
Onondaga Nation.

Additional Requestors and Disposition

    Lineal descendants or representatives of any Indian Tribe or Native 
Hawaiian organization not identified in this notice that wish to claim 
these cultural items should submit a written request with information 
in support of the claim to Alanna Ossa, NAGPRA Coordinator, State 
University of New York at Oswego, 313 Mahar Hall, Department of 
Anthropology, Oswego, NY 13126, telephone (315) 312-4172, email 
[email protected], by February 3, 2020. After that date, if no 
additional claimants have come forward, transfer of control of the 
unassociated funerary objects to the Cayuga Nation; Oneida Indian 
Nation (previously listed as the Oneida Nation of New York); and the 
Onondaga Nation may proceed.
