The Valles Caldera Trust has released the Final Environmental Impact Statement for the proposed Landscape Restoration and Stewardship Plan (Stewardship Plan).
The Stewardship Plan proposes a 10-year strategy for the restoration and stewardship of the forest, grassland, shrubland and riparian ecosystems of the Valles Caldera National Preserve.
Proposed activities include, forest thinning, wildland fire management, road closure, decommissioning, maintenance and repair; riparian restoration, erosion control, burned area rehabilitation, and noxious weed eradication and control.
The DRAFT EIS was released in August 2013 for a 45-day public review and comment period.
Based on the comments received, minor changes were made to the draft document.
Those changes and a complete record of the comments received and our responses are provided in appendices.
The appendices and the FEIS for the Stewardship Plan can be viewed or downloaded in their entirety or in individual chapters (smaller files).
Hard copies have been distributed to the following public libraries: Albuquerque-Bernalillo County, Española, Jemez Pueblo, Jemez Springs, Los Alamos, Loma Colorado (Rio Rancho), New Mexico State Library (Santa Fe), Santa Fe and White Rock.
