Ecological Overview East Clear Creek Parcel
The East Clear Creek parcel (“the Property”) is a private inholding within the Coconino National Forest, located along East Clear Creek about 38 miles (61 kilometers [km]) southwest of the town of Winslow. The Property encompasses uplands of the Colorado Plateau as well as an approximately 2.3-mile (3.7-km) reach of East Clear Creek in a narrow canyon. East Clear Creek is a perennial stream that flows toward the northeast to a confluence with the Little Colorado River near Winslow.
This ecological evaluation was conducted to:
- Identify the type and relative condition of the biological resources,
- Evaluate ecological characteristics of the Property to identify remarkable resource attributes, and
- Briefly assess the conservation values of these attributes in reference to local and regional contexts.
