SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00089 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 48877 Introduction With this notice, we continue the CCP process for Kootenai National Wildlife Refuge. We started this process through a notice in the Federal Register (74 FR 8102; February 23, 2009). Kootenai NWR encompasses 2,774 acres along the lower Kootenai River in Boundary County, ID. Habitat types on the refuge include seasonal, semipermanent, and permanent wetlands; floodplain forests; coniferous forests; managed pastures; and croplands. The refuge was established ‘‘for use as an inviolate sanctuary, or for any other management purpose, for migratory birds.’’ The refuge provides important habitat for waterbirds, migratory landbirds, and raptors; a variety of mammals including whitetailed deer, elk, and moose; and bull trout, which is listed as a threatened species under the Federal Endangered Species Act. Background The CCP Process The National Wildlife Refuge System Administration Act of 1966 (16 U.S.C. 668dd–668ee) (Refuge Administration Act), as amended by the National Wildlife Refuge System Improvement Act of 1997, requires us to develop a CCP for each national wildlife refuge. The purpose for developing a CCP is to provide refuge managers with a 15-year plan for achieving refuge purposes and contributing toward the mission of the National Wildlife Refuge System, consistent with sound principles of fish and wildlife management, conservation, legal mandates, and our policies. In addition to outlining broad management direction on conserving wildlife and their habitats, CCPs identify compatible wildlife-dependent recreational opportunities available to the public, including opportunities for hunting, fishing, wildlife observation and photography, and environmental education and interpretation. We will review and update the CCP at least every 15 years in accordance with the Refuge Administration Act. Public Outreach We began public outreach by distributing Planning Update 1 to our mailing list and public outlets in January 2009. On January 23, 2009, we held two public scoping meetings in Bonners Ferry, Idaho, to meet the public and obtain comments. The meetings were announced through local media outlets, on the refuge’s Web site, and in Planning Update 1. We published a Notice of Intent in the Federal Register announcing our intent to prepare a CCP/ E:\FR\FM\09AUN1.SGM 09AUN1
