SUMMARY:

The San Juan National Forest proposes to continue to authorize livestock grazing on all or portions of the Hermosa Landscape in a manner that moves resource conditions toward desired on-the-ground conditions and is consistent with Forest Plan standards and guidelines. The analysis area encompasses approximately 122,000 acres on three active cattle allotments (Elbert Creek, Dutch Creek, and Upper Hermosa) and four vacant cattle allotments (Cascade, Forebay, Hope Creek, and South Fork). The area is located north of Durango, Colorado, in San Juan and La Plata Counties, in Townships 37-40 North, Ranges 8-11 West, N.M.P.M. and is within the Columbine Ranger District, San Juan National Forest, Colorado.

The proposed action is designed to increase the flexibility of livestock grazing systems through adaptive management, which will allow quicker and more effective response to problems areas when they are revealed. Problems will be revealed through the use of short and long term monitoring. Application of adaptive management practices should result in healthier soil, watershed, and vegetative conditions.
