Notice of Filing of Plats of Survey; North Dakota, 65984-65985 [2014-26409]

Download as PDF 65984 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 215 / Thursday, November 6, 2014 / Notices Several agencies and individuals notified the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) that a suspected gray wolf (Canis lupus) was wandering in the area of the North Rim of the Grand Canyon in Arizona. Without being able to trap and identify the animal, it is unknown as to whether it is a gray wolf or some type of wolfdog hybrid. We believe it is in the animal’s best interest, with the upcoming deer hunting season opening in this area of Arizona, to capture, affix a brightly colored radio collar (if it is found to be a gray wolf), and draw blood (to identify the species), to help protect the animal from harm. We, the Service, under an Endangered Species Act (16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.) permit, have authorized the following researchers to conduct the above-mentioned activities for gray wolf in the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, Arizona. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Permit TE–676811 Applicant: U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Region 2, Regional Director Blanket Permit, Albuquerque, New Mexico. We approved the applicant’s request for an amendment to a current permit for research and recovery purposes to survey for, locate, capture, temporarily hold, draw blood, and radio collar, a gray wolf (Canis lupus) within the area of the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, Arizona. This emergency permit is issued for the sole purpose of protecting the suspected gray wolf in Arizona. Any further authorization for surveys or research of the gray wolf will be processed separately. Authority: 16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq. Dated: October 30, 2014. Joy E. Nicholopoulos, Deputy Regional Director, Southwest Region, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:46 Nov 05, 2014 Jkt 235001 ACTION: Interim final supplementary rules. The California State Director for the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is establishing interim final supplementary rules and requests public comments. These interim final supplementary rules will become effective immediately upon publication in the Federal Register, and will apply to 695 acres of public lands, known as Kanaka Valley, in El Dorado County, California. The BLM has determined that these interim final supplementary rules are necessary to enhance the safety of visitors and local residents and reduce the risk of undue ecological degradation to Kanaka Valley’s rare soils and plants and other significant values. These rules are in accordance with the Kanaka Valley Management Plan (2013). DATES: The interim final supplementary rules are effective immediately and remain in effect until modified or rescinded by the publication of final supplementary rules. The BLM invites comments until January 5, 2015. Comments received, postmarked, or electronically dated after that date will not necessarily be considered in the development of final supplementary rules. ADDRESSES: Please mail or hand deliver all comments concerning the interim final supplementary rules to the Bureau of Land Management, Attention: Supplementary Rules, BLM Mother Lode Field Office, 5152 Hillsdale Circle, El Dorado Hills, CA 95762.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: I. Public Comment Procedures The public is invited to provide comments on these interim final supplementary rules. See DATES and ADDRESSES for information on submitting comments. Written comments on the interim final supplementary rules should be specific, confined to issues pertinent to the interim final supplementary rules and explain the reason for any recommended change. Comments requesting changes to decisions in the 2013 Kanaka Valley Management Plan and Decision Record would be outside the scope of this rulemaking. Where possible, comments should reference a specific provision of these interim final supplementary rules. The BLM need not consider or include in the PO 00000 Frm 00064 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 65985 administrative record: (a) comments that the BLM receives after the close of the comment period (see DATES), unless they are postmarked or electronically dated before the deadline, or (b) comments delivered to an address other than that listed above (see ADDRESSES). Comments, including names, street addresses, and other contact information of respondents, will be available for public review at the BLM Mother Lode Field Office during regular business hours of 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays. Before including your address, telephone number, email address, or other personal identifying information in your comment, be advised that your entire comment—including your personal identifying information—may be made publicly available at any time. While you can ask in your comment to withhold from public review your personal identifying information, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so. II. Background Kanaka Valley is comprised of 695 acres of public lands in El Dorado County, California. The BLM acquired Kanaka Valley through a donation in 2010. In response to the rapidly growing popularity of Kanaka Valley with the recreating public and the need to provide for public safety and protect this area’s special environmental values, the BLM developed the 2013 Kanaka Valley Management Plan and Decision Record. This is an area-specific activitylevel plan that tiers to the BLM’s 2008 Sierra Resource Management Plan. It was needed to help the BLM manage Kanaka Valley’s special environmental values and recreational opportunities. Sections 302 and 310 of the Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976 (43 U.S.C. 1732 and 1740) provide the overall authority for the BLM’s management of Kanaka Valley. The BLM is establishing these interim final supplementary rules under the authority of 43 CFR 8365.1–6, which allows BLM State Directors to establish supplementary rules for the protection of persons, property, and public lands and resources. The supplementary rules outlined in this notice are designed to immediately and effectively reduce risks to public health and safety and the area’s environmental resources including, but not limited to, rare gabbro soils and plants. The supplementary rules include provisions to partially open Kanaka Valley to hunting. The seasons of use and methods of take were developed collaboratively by the BLM, adjacent private residents, local stakeholders, E:\FR\FM\06NON1.SGM 06NON1
