Short Description of Activity

Broads (and Tom Slaback came and represented Sierra Club) was invited to participate in pre-scoping re this Grazing Project renewal which was initiated three years ago. Broads responded to scoping Feb. 2018. The project has been updated and revised. I made it clear that Broads advocates for management that ensures grazing practices are sustainable, etc. Every part of the upcoming EA was represented in this on-line meeting – District Ranger, Environmental coordinator, biologist, foresters, arch site person, game and fish, etc.

Reflection/Evaluation

They gave reports and repartee for two hours. Tom and I always comment on how disjointed the EA’s are and with all these folks writing their separate sections, it is easy to see why. The grazing project will combine 10 allotments into one big one and one small one (one permittee I believe). Several trick tanks or other water features are planned. The allotments are in the southern Bradshaws. It is beautiful country. New Scoping is expected in January followed in the middle of the year with the EA. Our comments were welcome. Good to be invited in on pre-scoping and thus being able to make comments and express concerns – knowing what to expect. Prepared for the meeting by reading PNF documents, maps, and consulting with Broads NEPA co-author Tom.
