Document Description
The National Park Service proposed an update to the Devils Postpile National Monument Fire Management Plan and assess two plan alternatives in this EA. The no-action alternative continues the strategy adopted in 2005 permitting fuel reduction actions only in the 15% of the monument that is not federally-designated wilderness. Alternative B, the preferred alternative, would update the 2005 FMP to bring it into conformance with current federal wildland fire management policy that ensures the full range of strategic and tactical options be available and considered in the response to every wildland fire. Alternative B would allow for fuel management using prescribed burning and manual fuel reduction throughout the 800-acre monument and management of wildlife for multiple objectives.
