Region 2 FWP has issued a Decision Notice to proceed with its proposal to renew a lease of pasture on its Blackfoot Clearwater Wildlife Management Area (BCWMA) located in Powell County. The proposed lease between FWP and the Two Creek Ranch (Lessee) would exchange grazing on 1,050 acres of primarily non-native pasture on the BCWMA, for implementation of a rest-rotation grazing system on 1,000 acres of privately managed native grasslands that provide important elk winter forage. Additionally, infrastructure maintenance and weed treatment on the BCWMA would be performed by the Lessee. FWP will recommend to the FWP Commission at its May 9 meeting that FWP be allowed to proceed with this lease.
