- Notice of Availability - Final PEA and FONSI (signed) for Integrated, Adaptive Management of the Common Raven on DoD Lands in the California Desert
- Notice of the Final PEA and signed FONSI for Integrated, Adaptive Management of the Common Raven on DoD Lands in the California Desert (Comment Period Closed). Under the Proposed Action, six Department of Defense installations would conduct integrated raven management on lands owned or used by the DoD in the California desert. Installations include: Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center (MCAGCC), Marine Corps Logistics Base Barstow; Edwards Air Force Base; Fort Irwin National Training Center; Naval Air Weapons Station China Lake; Chocolate Mountain Aerial Gunnery Range. Installations span the following counties: Los Angeles, Kern, Inyo, Riverside, Imperial, and San Bernardino. Raven management under the Proposed Action includes use of non-lethal and lethal raven management actions to reduce raven populations and activities to achieve the Purpose and Need (resolve ecological, economic and health and safety issues). In comparison to the No Action, the Proposed Action represents a shift towards more lethal forms of raven management. The focus of the Final PEA effects analysis is on Biological Resources, Cultural Resources, and Health and Safety. MCAGCC is the NEPA lead agency. Other installations are cooperating agencies. The MCAGCC FONSI is specific to MCAGCC. Other installations would issue separate decisions at a later date. Each agency has discretion to determine the scope of their future raven management approach.
