Scoping Comments for the Skutumpah Terrace Sage-Grouse Habitat Restoration Project

Dear [Decision Maker],

I am writing to strongly oppose the Skutumpah Terrace vegetation removal project that your office is currently planning for 19,000 acres of public land within the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument (GSENM).

Past vegetation projects conducted by the BLM have not proven sustainable in the long term. Typically, there is heavy human interference required to maintain projects of this size, and there is little reason to think the proposed vegetation manipulations will be successful or sustainable in this case.

Thank you for considering these comments.

Sincerely,
