Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks’ (FWP) Future Fisheries Improvement Program has prepared an environmental assessments (EA) for the proposed FFI-014-2014 Keep Cool Creek project tentatively approved by its Citizens Review Panel on June 19, 2014. This project would improve migration corridors for trout populations during high flow periods and restore the impaired channel to its natural state. The project involves removal of an undersized stream crossing and replacement with a structure that will allow for habitat improvement and uninhibited movement of trout. Keep Cool Creek is a tributary to the upper Blackfoot River located north of the town of Lincoln in Lewis and Clark County. 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 18, 2014. Double click the title line to view the EA and/or submit comments.

Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks’ (FWP) Future Fisheries Improvement Program has prepared an environmental assessments (EA) for the proposed FFI-013-2014 East Gallatin Restoration project tentatively approved by its Citizens Review Panel on June 19, 2014. This project plans to restore the largest remaining riparian-wetland complex within Bozeman’s urban core, improving water quality and providing additional fish habitat and angler access to the East Gallatin River. The project would remove man-made materials and revegetate streambanks as well as restore backwater areas and floodplain connectivity. The East Gallatin River is a tributary to the Gallatin River located within the town of Bozeman in Gallatin County. 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 18, 2014. Double click the title line to view the EA and/or submit comments.

Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks’ (FWP) Future Fisheries Improvement Program has prepared an environmental assessments (EA) for the proposed FFI-011-2014 Bean Creek project tentatively approved by its Citizens Review Panel on June 19, 2014. The Program tentatively plans to provide partial funding toward a stream channel restoration project located on an altered reach of Bean Creek, a tributary to the Red Rock River. This proposed project is located approximately 10 miles west of the community of Lakeview in Beaverhead County. 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.

The enclosed draft Environmental Assessment (EA) has been prepared for the proposed Selective, Mechanical Removal of Nonnative Fishes in the Shields River Watershed project. The project proposes that FWP conduct removal of nonnative rainbow trout from waters upstream of Chadbourne Diversion and removal of nonnative brook trout and brown trout in waters upstream of a proposed barrier upstream of Crandall Creek. Both of these species pose significant threats to the conservation of Yellowstone Cutthroat trout in the Shields River Watershed.

An Environmental Assessment (EA) has been prepared for the proposed purchase of a conservation easement on approximately 2,824 acres of private land from the Potter Brothers Farms. The Milk River riparian corridor is critical to maintaining stable wildlife populations, primarily because of the high quality year-round habitat. The terms of the easement are directed at conserving the primary habitats represented on the property, including riparian corridors, sagebrush and shrub grasslands, and plains grasslands. Critical winter range for migrating antelope, and habitat that serves as a migratory linkage for sage grouse, will be protected and enhanced. The easement also assures that free public hunting will continue to be the tool used to manage game populations and provide recreation to sportsmen and women. The conservation easement will achieve these important conservation goals while having no identified adverse impacts to the natural or human environment. After reviewing the merits of this proposal and the strong public support, it is my decision that Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks move forward to purchase the Buffalo Coulee Conservation Easement. This decision is made subject to the approval of the Montana Fish and Wildlife Commission and the Montana Board of Land Commissioners.
