Management Strategies
The Navy and Oregon National Guard recognize that their training activities may potentially affect habitat and wildlife at NWSTF Boardman. Although there are currently no federally threatened or endangered species residing within the boundaries of NWSTF Boardman, the Navy and Oregon National Guard proactively engage in management strategies to identify possible impacts from training activities on potentially listed species and strives to minimize these effects. Proposed projects, military training activities or other actions are routinely evaluated for potential impacts on species and to ensure compliance with all laws and regulations.
Integrated Natural Resources Management Plan (INRMP)
An INRMP is a long-term planning document that guides natural resources management at NWSTF Boardman. Maintaining the health of habitats and wildlife ensures the preservation of the native landscapes and allows military training in a realistic setting. The comprehensive and expansive INRMP is implemented to ensure:
  • Sustainability of all species and habitats within NWSTF Boardman
  • Balance of military training with natural resources management, with the goal of no net loss of the military capabilities at NWSTF Boardman, as required by the Sikes Act
