The Sublett Division and adjacent public lands are currently being used for livestock grazing. Livestock utilization of riparian habitat can lead to adverse impacts of vegetation, watershed, and wildlife values if proper management standards and guidelines are not applied. A brief survey was conducted of riparian sample sites following the 1999, 2000, and 2001 grazing seasons to assess the impacts of livestock grazing to these representative sites. These same locations have been re-assessed following or near the conclusion of the 2002 grazing season in order to determine livestock impacts and current riparian conditions.

Each location surveyed for this chapter has retained the same numerical designation as in Volumes I, II, and III, and includes the following sample sites:
