Title: Shaketable Research Natural Area environmental assessment, establishment order, and decision notice/designation order and finding of no significant impact
Author: Blue Mountain Ranger District (Or.)
Abstract: Environmental assessment proposes to amend Malheur Management Plan, changing the status of the proposed Shaketable Research Natural Area (RNA) on the Blue Mountain RD to an established RNA status. Would contribute to the network of RNAs by providing an example of Western juniper/low sagebrush/bunchgrass, low sagebrush/Idaho fescue, rigid sagebrush/Sandberg's bluegrass, and bitterbrush/bunchgrass woodland identified by the Oregon Natural Heritage Advisory Council. Establishment record states that the new RNA will serve as a reference area for study, as a baseline area for determining long-term ecological changes, and as a monitoring area to determine effects of management techniques and practices applied to similar ecosystems. Decision notice announces implementation of the new 385-acre Shaketable RNA.
