Summary
Abstract: The unique characteristics of the Snake River Canyon and the
adjoining upland desert south of Boise, Idaho, have been recognized
since the 1940s (Olendorff and Kochert 1977). An area associated with
a 130-km stretch of canyon supports one of the highest densities of
non-colonial nesting raptors in the world (U.S. Dep. Inter. 1979,
Olendorff et al, 1989). This area also contains exceptionally high

Purpose: The overall goal of the BLM/IDARNG Research Project was to obtain
information critical for preserving and managing raptors, their prey,
and habitat in the NCA. Specifically, research results would be used
to: 1) provide information for an analysis of the effects of military
training in the NCA that will meet National Environmental Policy Act
(NEPA) requirements; 2) contribute information about ... View entire text

Quality At the outset it was recognized that all issues relating to the
potential impacts of military training, fire, livestock grazing, and
other activities on the NCA's habitats, prey, and raptors could not be
fully addressed during the 5-year research period. For some issues,
background data were inadequate to permit appropriate research design,
