The purpose of the proposed project is to control the spread of EWM within Canyon Ferry WMA and to prevent it from spreading into downstream areas of the Missouri River system and to other areas where recreationists inadvertently carry the invasive plant species. This environmental assessment evaluates three alternatives: a No Action Alternative, the current action of mechanical and cultural (use materials or techniques that reduce weed populations such as bottom barriers or water drawdowns) control only, and the preferred alternative that utilizes mechanical, cultural, and chemical control in an integrated weed management approach (IWM). The IWM approach will help minimize the use of each option to minimize the potential impacts of each option to fish, wildlife, water quality, and habitat. Cultural and mechanical control will continue to be used in select areas while herbicide applications could occur in suitable sites such as the West Canal that diverts water to Pond 4. This project will last 5 years (2014-2018). During that time, additional herbicide application could occur in additional sites within Canyon Ferry WMA if management area staff determines their necessity.

Montana Fish, Wildlife, and Parks (FWP) proposes to purchase a permanent road easement providing a permanent route to the area for public hunting and recreation access. The route would approach the Bear Gulch Road from the east to cross approximately 1 mile of a private land owned by the Prickly Pear Land Trust (PPLT). PPLT and Forest Service will enter into a Purchase Option agreement whereby PPLT will bargain sell the easement to FWP but convey the easement to the Forest Service. The Forest Service administers the public lands of the Helena National Forest surrounding the private lands the Bear Gulch Road #4136 crosses. The proposed road easement provides the only legal public access rights to the adjacent property owned by the Foundation that is under option to be conveyed to the Forest Service. This Draft EA is available for review in Helena at FWP’s Headquarters, the State Library, and the Environmental Quality Council. It also may be obtained from the Bozeman or Butte FWP offices, or viewed on FWP’s website: http://www.fwp.mt.gov.

Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks’ (FWP) Future Fisheries Improvement Program has prepared an environmental assessments (EA) for the proposed FFI-023-2014 Ten Mile Creek Bank Stabilization and Fencing project tentatively approved by its Citizens Review Panel on June 19, 2014. This project would fence approximately 4,200 feet of Tenmile Creek and install livestock water gaps at appropriate locations. Additional funding from other sources has been secured to convert the adjacent land parcel from flood irrigation to an electric pump and wheel lines, which will allow efficient delivery of water and preserve Tenmile Creek streamflows. Expected outcomes from the overall project include efficient water delivery to pasture lands, promotion of riparian vegetation growth by excluding livestock, and providing a water source for livestock through water gaps. This project will be on Tenmile Creek, a tributary to the Missouri River, located approximately 2 miles west of Helena, T 10N, R 4W, Sections 31 and 32 (Attachment 1). The property is owned by the Grunenfelder Family Partnership LLP. Funding for this project is contingent upon a favorable decision with respect to the EA, and upon approval being granted by the Fish and Wildlife Commission. Comments are due by 5:00 pm August 25, 2014. Double click the title line to view the EA and/or submit comments.
