Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 82 / Thursday, April 29, 2010 / Notices Bear Valley National Wildlife Refuge was established in 1978 under the authority of the Endangered Species Act to protect a major night roost site for wintering bald eagles in Southern Oregon. The refuge consists of 4,200 acres, primarily of old growth ponderosa pine, incense cedar, and white and Douglas fir. Bear Valley National Wildlife Refuge also provides nesting habitat for several bald eagle pairs. Clear Lake National Wildlife Refuge was established by President William Taft in 1911 as a ‘‘preserve and breeding ground for native birds’’ (Executive Order 1332). Located in northeastern California, the Refuge consists of approximately 20,000 acres of open water surrounded by over 26,000 acres of upland bunchgrass, low sagebrush, and juniper habitat. Small, rocky islands in the lake provide nesting sites for American white pelicans, doublecrested cormorants, and other colonial nesting birds. The Klamath Basin Refuges consist of a variety of habitats, including freshwater marshes, open water, grassy meadows, coniferous forests, sagebrush and juniper grasslands, agricultural lands, and rocky cliffs and slopes. These habitats support diverse and abundant populations of resident and migratory wildlife, with 433 species having been observed on or near the Refuges. In addition, each year the Refuges serve as a migratory stopover for about threequarters of the Pacific Flyway waterfowl, with peak fall concentrations of over 1 million birds.
