Abstract:

The Integrated Natural Resources Management Plan INRMP provides guidance for the conservation of natural resources at NTTR, CAFB, and NAFB. These guidelines have been developed within the context of the military mission of NTTR, CAFB, and NAFB. A primary goal of this INRMP is to sustain military readiness while maintaining ecosystem integrity and dynamics on NAFB, CAFB, and NTTR. The Proposed Action provides guidance to establish mission actions that minimize impacts to natural resources at NAFB, CAFB, and NTTR as much as practicable. Proposed surveys and studies would require funding by U.S. Air Force. Alternatives to the proposed action include Alternative A and the No Action Alternative. Alternative A would be to operate NTTR, CAFB, and NAFB with no INRMP guidance, but adopting the NTTR Range Management Plan, BLM Resource Management Plan and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Desert National Wildlife Range Comprehensive Conservation Plan when it is approved. The No Action Alternative is to continue operating under the current INRMP with no improvements as suggested by the revised INRMP.
