Plum Creek Timber Habitat Conservation Plan

This multi-species agreement provides watershed-scale management of fish and wildlife habitat across a 150,000-acre area of industrial timberlands for 50 years in Washington's central Cascade Mountains. Watershed prescriptions to protect unstable slopes and correct roads that deliver sediments to streams are being implemented according to outcomes of specific analyses. The HCP was approved June 1996. NOAA Fisheries issued the incidental take permit in March 2001.

The habitat conservation plan and associated documents are very large files. Please e-mail wcr.webcontent@noaa.gov to request a CD of these documents, and include your name and full mailing address.
