Abstract
  • The National Natural Landmarks (NNL) Program encourages the preservation of exceptional examples of the nation’s biological and geological features. To qualify for NNL designation, a site must be one of the best examples of a geological or biological feature within a biophysiographic province. Mount Howard - East Peak represents a high quality, representative example of this the Montane Grasslands Sub-Theme, within the Grasslands theme in the Columbia Plateau Biophysiographic Province. The initial report recommended the site as the best remaining example of the montane grasslands subtheme, although many sites were evaluated and many sites contain high quality and relatively representative examples of this theme. This report recommends that the Mount Howard – East Peak PNNL meets the national significance criteria required for the NNL Program. The proposed site has the best, most representative, diverse and accessible examples of montane grasslands, and contains many other features making it perfect for NNL designation.
