Reintroductions of this species are being undertaken on lands already conserved. Streaked horned lark (Eremophila alpestris strigata) is a native bird found in prairies, grasslands, and other sparsely vegetated areas. This species was proposed to be federally listed as a threatened species and designation of critical habitat was proposed on October 11, 2012 (77 FR 61937). Once distributed from British Columbia to southern Oregon, its range has retracted considerably. Within Thurston County this species is found at only few locations. The northernmost known population occurs on Joint Base LewisMcChord. The Mazama pocket gopher (Thomomys mazama), a native mammal of Thurston County, occurs on prairie habitat and prairie soils. In the south Puget Sound area, two of nine subpopulations of Mazama pocket gopher have become extinct since the 1940s. Four subspecies of the gopher were proposed to be federally listed as threatened and designation of critical habitat was proposed on December 11, 2012 (77 FR 77370). The county also proposes to cover the Oregon spotted frog (Rana pretiosa), which was designated a candidate species on September 19, 1997 (62 FR 49402), and the following non-listed species: western gray squirrel (Sciurus griseus), Oregon vesper sparrow (Pooecetes graminesu), slender-billed white-breasted nuthatch (Sitta carolinensis aculeate), western pond turtle (Clemmys marmorata affinus), western toad (Bufo boreas), mardon skipper (Polites mardon), Puget blue butterfly (Icaricia icarioides blackmorei), valley silverspot butterfly (Speyeria zerene), white-top aster (Aster curtus), rose checker mallow (Sidalcea malviflora virgata), small-flowered trillium (Trillium parviflorum), and Puget balsamroot (Balsamorhiza deltoidea). information regarding management issues and goals to be considered in the development of the HCP; existing environmental conditions in Thurston County; other plans or projects that might be relevant to this proposed project; permit duration; areas and specific landforms that should or should not be covered; species that should or should not be covered; covered activities, including potential avoidance, minimization, and mitigation measures; monitoring and adaptive management provisions; and funding suggestions. We will accept written comments at the public meeting. You may also submit written comments to the Service at our U.S. mail address, by email, or by facsimile (see ADDRESSES section above). Once the draft EIS and draft HCP are prepared, there will be further opportunity for public comment on the content of these documents through an additional 90-day public comment period. Public Scoping The primary purpose of the scoping process is for the public to assist the Service and Thurston County in developing a draft EIS by identifying important issues and alternatives related to the applicant’s proposed action. The scoping meeting will include presentations by the Service and Thurston County, followed by informal questions and discussions. Written comments from all interested parties are welcome to ensure that a full range of issues and alternatives related to the proposed permit request is identified. The Service requests that comments be specific.
