Comments sought for Kane Ranch Environmental Analysis
Williams-Grand Canyon News

FREDONIA, Ariz. - The North Kaibab Ranger District of the Kaibab National Forest is soliciting comments for the Kane Ranch Environmental Analysis, which will inform the creation of a new grazing allotment management plan for approximately 435,000 acres on the Kaibab Plateau.

The scoping period began on July 9 and will continue through Aug. 7. The Kaibab National Forest is seeking any information from the public that could inform and improve the environmental analysis.

The project is proposing to reauthorize grazing on the Central Summer, Central Winter, and Kane Allotments, commonly referred to as the Kane Ranch Allotments. The allotments were last analyzed as part of the 2001 Kane Ranch Environmental Analysis.

The North Kaibab District Ranger expects to issue a decision by September 2013. Reauthorization of livestock grazing would exist for a minimum of ten years.
