Notice of availability.
The Environmental Assessment for the Carrol Creek Fire Salvage and Restoration Project is available for review. The EA discusses alternatives considered for resource recovery and restoration for the Carrol Creek fire area, which burned in August 2000. Five alternatives are considered representing a range of treatment levels for the area. The preferred alternative (Alternative 2) includes a project-specific amendment to the Wallowa-Whitman National Forest Land and Resource Management Plan. This amendment replaces 175 acres of burned Designated Old Growth habitat with the best available adjacent habitat. The Carrol Creek area is about 11 air miles southeast of Joseph, Oregon. The Environmental Assessment is available upon request from the Wallowa Valley Ranger District, 88401 Highway 82, Enterprise, OR, 97828: and at the Wallowa-Whitman National Forest website at www.fs.fed.us/r6/w-w.Start Further Info
