Background. The Bear Grub Vegetation Management Project incorporates portions of Middle Applegate, Little Applegate, and Bear Creek watersheds to meet the management goals and directions of the 2016 Southwestern Oregon Resource Management Plan (SWO RMP).

Status. The BLM is currently in the preliminary scoping phase for the Bear Grub Vegetation Management Project. The purpose of scoping is to gather input for the potential issues, impacts, and alternatives to be addressed in the environmental analysis for this project.

Preliminary Project Information. This project would be implemented to fulfill multiple purposes including: contributions to the Allowable Sale Quality established in the SWO RMP to meet purposes of the Oregon and California and Coos Bay Wagon Road Grant Lands act of 1937 (O&C Act); to restore and maintain forest health and resiliency of stands in the project area; and to improve fire and fuels management opportunities.

Public Involvement. We would like to hear from you regarding any information or comments you would like to be considered in the development of the project. Comments that clearly articulate specific suggestions, information, or concerns are the most helpful. The input you provide will help an interdisciplinary team of BLM resource specialists to develop alternatives, project design features, and to assess the potential environmental effects.
