No surveys for Peregrine Falcons have been done since 1993 when 2 nest sites were found just outside the boundary of the Tarzan project area. Several adjacent sites were classified at that time as having potential for peregrine nesting. 21 of the Tarzan project units are within 3 miles of a known eyrie (nest site).

"Purpose & Need": 

The Tarzan EA (both Tarzan and Jane) proposes to clear-cut 287 acres because stands are growing slowly are diseased and are exposed to repeated storm events which continually damage trees and blow them down. ' The sales would also thin and fertilize 104 acres of "70 year old natural second growth " since they are "experiencing a slowing ofgrowth due to overcrowding.'
