Comment:

The sponsors were asked to respond concerning this parcel’s role in the landscape, goals in terms of measurable biological outcomes, more detailed work elements, and monitoring and evaluation activities. Specific questions were raised about weed control strategies. The response clarified many issues, particularly weed control and the landscape context for management of this parcel. The scope of the project, 166 acres of winter mule deer habitat, justifies limited monitoring and evaluation. The revised project proposes to increase the budget to develop a monitoring plan beyond HEP. HEP is not recommended unless they need to do it for some compliance reason. Not particular to this proposal, but illustrated within is the intent to repeat HEP analysis as monitoring, an ongoing concern for ISRP and ISAB. For this project, monitoring could be limited to presence of necessary habitat elements for expected season of use, presence of target species during anticipated season of use, and status of weed populations.
