environmental assessment-tree trimming

Harris Environmental developed an EA for tree trimming at the Neah Bay Air Route Surveillance Radar and at the VHF Omnidirectional Range near Neah Bay, WA. Reviewing and synthesizing all past research, documentation, and monitoring data; we developed a preliminary draft EA, and assisted with scoping and analyzing public comments, and provided a final EA to the FAA. These towers are located on two rugged peaks in the remote northern Olympic peninsula of Washington state. The towers are located within the traditionally recognized territory of the Makah Tribe and is located within the present-day boundaries of the Makah Reservation. We facilitated tribal coordination and synthesized responses of tribes that continue to recognize a relationship to the Olympic Peninsula based on traditional land use, origin, beliefs, mythology and spiritual beliefs and practices.
