Abstract:

Grazing Lease Program at Beale AFB, California. The purpose of the Proposed Action is to grant new grazing leases and continue the managed grazing program at Beale AFB. According to the INRMP, the purpose of the Proposed Action is to provide for the multiple purpose uses of natural resources, including grazing by domestic livestock, protecting wildlife habitat and watershed resources, and providing outdoor recreation opportunities. The Proposed Action would also reduce wildfire hazard by controlling grass fire fuels, control invasive weeds, improve security by reducing vegetative cover, improve habitat in grasslands and vernal pools, support the local agricultural economy, and provide revenue for base natural resource projects. The need for the proposed action is due to the expiration of the existing grazing leases.
