Application requirements and issuance criteria for EOS permits through SHAs are found in title 50 of the Code of Federal Regulations at 50 CFR 17.22(c) and 17.32(c). Applications Eden Safe Harbor Agreement We have worked with the Edens to develop an SHA for the creation and enhancement of habitat for the northern spotted owl on two parcels comprising the 242-acre Eden property, Mendocino County, California. The term of the proposed SHA is 40 years. Currently the property supports 143 acres of northern spotted owl nesting/roosting habitat and one northern spotted owl activity center. We anticipate that, under the northern spotted owl habitat creation and enhancement timber management regime proposed in the SHA, approximately 185 acres of nesting/ roosting habitat and potentially up to two northern spotted owl activity centers could exist on the property at the end of 40 years. RPH Comptche Properties LLC Safe Harbor Agreement We have worked with the applicant to develop an SHA for the creation and enhancement of habitat for the northern spotted owl on the 120-acre RPH Comptche Properties (formerly, Herr et al. Ranch), Mendocino County, California. The term of the proposed SHA is 40 years. Currently the property supports 108 acres of northern spotted owl nesting/roosting habitat, 12 acres of grassland, and one northern spotted owl activity center. We anticipate that, under the northern spotted owl habitat creation and enhancement timber management regime proposed in the SHA, approximately 108 acres of nesting/roosting habitat and potentially as many as two northern spotted owl activity centers could exist on the property at the end of 40 years. For both the Eden SHA and the RPH Comptche Properties LLC SHA, if more than one northern spotted owl activity center become established on the PO 00000 Frm 00040 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 9990 property, take of northern spotted owls associated with the effects of timber harvest on such additional northern spotted owl activity centers would be authorized under the incidental take permit during the 40-year permit term. At the end of the 40-year SHA and permit term, no further take of northern spotted owls would be allowed unless the SHA and incidental take permit are renewed or extended. The development and maintenance of high-quality functional habitat employing unevenaged timber management practices in a matrix of private timberland subject to even-aged management regimes will provide a relatively stable habitat condition that we believe will provide high productivity for multiple generations of northern spotted owls. Therefore, the cumulative impact of the SHA and the activities it covers, which are facilitated by the allowable incidental take, are expected to provide a net conservation benefit to the northern spotted owl.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    Under safe harbor agreements (SHAs), participating landowners 
voluntarily undertake management activities on their properties to 
enhance, restore, or maintain habitat benefiting species listed under 
the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (ESA; 16 U.S.C. 1531 et 
seq.). SHAs, and the subsequent enhancement of survival (EOS) permits 
that are issued pursuant to section 10(a)(1)(A) of the ESA, encourage 
private and other non-Federal property owners to implement conservation 
efforts for listed species, by assuring property owners that they will 
not be subject to increased land use restriction as a result of efforts 
to attract or increase the numbers or distribution of a listed species 
on their property. Application requirements and issuance criteria for 
EOS permits through SHAs are found in title 50 of the Code of Federal 
Regulations at 50 CFR 17.22(c) and 17.32(c).

Applications

Eden Safe Harbor Agreement

    We have worked with the Edens to develop an SHA for the creation 
and enhancement of habitat for the northern spotted owl on two parcels 
comprising the 242-acre Eden property, Mendocino County, California. 
The term of the proposed SHA is 40 years. Currently the property 
supports 143 acres of northern spotted owl nesting/roosting habitat and 
one northern spotted owl activity center. We anticipate that, under the 
northern spotted owl habitat creation and enhancement timber management 
regime proposed in the SHA, approximately 185 acres of nesting/roosting 
habitat and potentially up to two northern spotted owl activity centers 
could exist on the property at the end of 40 years.

RPH Comptche Properties LLC Safe Harbor Agreement

    We have worked with the applicant to develop an SHA for the 
creation and enhancement of habitat for the northern spotted owl on the 
120-acre RPH Comptche Properties (formerly, Herr et al. Ranch), 
Mendocino County, California. The term of the proposed SHA is 40 years. 
Currently the property supports 108 acres of northern spotted owl 
nesting/roosting habitat, 12 acres of grassland, and one northern 
spotted owl activity center. We anticipate that, under the northern 
spotted owl habitat creation and enhancement timber management regime 
proposed in the SHA, approximately 108 acres of nesting/roosting 
habitat and potentially as many as two northern spotted owl activity 
centers could exist on the property at the end of 40 years.
    For both the Eden SHA and the RPH Comptche Properties LLC SHA, if 
more than one northern spotted owl activity center become established 
on the property, take of northern spotted owls associated with the 
effects of timber harvest on such additional northern spotted owl 
activity centers would be authorized under the incidental take permit 
during the 40-year permit term. At the end of the 40-year SHA and 
permit term, no further take of northern spotted owls would be allowed 
unless the SHA and incidental take permit are renewed or extended. The 
development and maintenance of high-quality functional habitat 
employing uneven-aged timber management practices in a matrix of 
private timberland subject to even-aged management regimes will provide 
a relatively stable habitat condition that we believe will provide high 
productivity for multiple generations of northern spotted owls. 
Therefore, the cumulative impact of the SHA and the activities it 
covers, which are facilitated by the allowable incidental take, are 
expected to provide a net conservation benefit to the northern spotted 
owl.
