Ecological Overview Summary: Federal Parcel and Offered Lands Parcels
This report summarizes the biological resources of one parcel of U.S. Forest Service land (the Federal Parcel) and five privately owned parcels (the Offered Lands). The work was conducted in anticipation of a possible land exchange. In addition, a sixth privately owned parcel was similarly studied and its biological resources are summarized herein, but this sixth parcel, while not included in the offered lands package may have merits as a mitigation parcel to offset potential future resource impacts.
