The Goosenest Ranger District has identified 175 acres of site preparation and reforestation in the proximity of the Three Sisters Bald Eagle winter roost. This project is designed to implement the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's Pacific Bald Eagle Management Recovery Plan. The Three Sisters Roost is part of the Klamath Basin winter roosting area, the largest in the lower 48 states. Major goals are to maintain and improve forested habitat in both the breeding and wintering ranges, to maintain and develop nesting and roosting habitat for future use by eagles, and to plant new trees in potential bald eagle use areas devoid of tree reproduction. Approximately 21,000 ponderosa pine were planted in 1999 as the second step toward realization of this project.
This project was supported by our corporate partner, the Alcoa Foundation.
