CEDAR CITY — The Bureau of Land Management is seeking public comment on a plan to improve access at Parowan Gap.
The proposed project supports the BLM multiple-use mission by providing for the long-term preservation of cultural and paleontological resources at the site, as well as the restoration of habitat for threatened and endangered species like greater sage grouse and Utah prairie dog.
By replacing non-native and invasive species with native grasses and forbs, the BLM anticipates improving wildlife habitat and preventing continued erosion of some cultural resources currently threatened by noxious weeds.
The proposed project would also locate several new public parking areas away from cultural resources, stabilize areas to help prevent rock slides and provide other improvements.
The environmental assessment report is available on the Environmental Notification Bulletin Board at www.blm.gov/ut/enbb/index.php. Written comments will be accepted by letter or email until close of business March 3.
