SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: We, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service), announce the availability of a draft recovery plan for Pagosa skyrocket (Ipomopsis polyantha), a plant listed as endangered under the Endangered Species Act, as amended (Act; 16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.). The draft recovery plan includes objective, measurable criteria, and site-specific management actions as may be necessary to remove the species from the Federal List of Endangered and Threatened Plants. We are requesting review and comment from the public on this draft recovery plan. DATES: Jkt 253001 On August 26, 2011, we listed Pagosa skyrocket as an endangered plant (July 27, 2011; 76 FR 45054). On August 13, 2012, we designated approximately 9,641 acres (ac) (3,902 hectares (ha)) of critical habitat (77 FR 48368). Pagosa skyrocket is a narrow endemic plant, occurring only on soils of the Mancos shale formation in Archuleta County, Colorado. It occurs at between 6,400 to 8,100 feet (ft) (1,951–2,469 meters (m)) in elevation and typically grows on infrequently disturbed lightly vegetated sites or at the edge of ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa) forest (Anderson 2004, p. 20). Pagosa skyrocket appears able to self-pollinate when stressed, but reproduction is more PO 00000 Frm 00077 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 34271 successful when outcrossed (Anderson 2004, p. 23). Pagosa skyrocket typically spends more than a year in a vegetative state before flowering and dying (monocarpic perennial). However, if conditions are ideal, it behaves as a biennial. It is a member of the Polemoniaceae (phlox) family and is regarded as a distinct species (Anderson 2004, p. 10). We do not know the historical distribution of Pagosa skyrocket. Currently, we know of two populations– –Pagosa Springs/Mill Creek and Dyke– –occupying approximately 462 ac (187 ha) and located 13 miles (mi) (21 kilometers (km)) apart. Approximately 3.5 ac (1.4 ha) of occupied habitat occurs on Bureau of Land Management (BLM) land. The remainder of occupied habitat is located on private land, land owned by the Town of Pagosa Springs, highway rights of way (ROWs), and an 88-ac (36-ha) parcel owned and managed by Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW). The CPW parcel contains more than 90 percent of all known Pagosa skyrocket plants and is managed with the primary goal of conserving Pagosa skyrocket. All known occupied habitat for the species occurs within designated critical habitat. The primary threat to Pagosa skyrocket, both at the time of listing and currently, is commercial, residential, agricultural, and municipal development. We have documented losses from development of habitat and individual plants for both populations. Without additional protections, we anticipate an increase in the magnitude of this threat affecting the species’ future resiliency, redundancy, and representation. Overgrazing, invasive plants, and climate change may exacerbate the threat from development. Several conservation actions have been initiated since listing in 2011 as follows: (1) CPW acquired 88 ac (36 ha) of occupied Pagosa skyrocket critical habitat that had been slated for development. The primary management goal of this parcel is conservation of Pagosa skyrocket. (2) Archuleta County incorporated Pagosa skyrocket preservation into the Archuleta County Community Plan to assist in recovering the species. (3) The Town of Pagosa Springs Master Plan identified a goal to ‘‘Strive to protect and celebrate the Pagosa skyrocket.’’ (4) Volunteers and the Geothermal Greenhouse Partnership initiated greenhouse experiments to grow and transplant Pagosa skyrocket individuals.

Background

    The Mazama pocket gopher is a fossorial (burrowing) mammal. In 
April 2014, the following four subspecies of Mazama pocket gopher, 
found in glacial outwash prairie habitats in the south Puget Sound 
region of western Washington State, were listed as threatened species 
pursuant to the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (16 U.S.C. 
1531 et seq.; Act) (79 FR 19760; April 9, 2014). The draft recovery 
plan covers these four subspecies.

Recovery Planning Process

    Recovery of endangered and threatened animals and plants is a 
primary goal of our endangered species program. To help guide the 
recovery effort, we prepare recovery plans for most listed species. 
Recovery plans describe actions considered necessary for conservation 
of the species, establish criteria for downlisting or delisting, and 
estimate time and cost for implementing recovery measures.

Recovery Planning and Implementation

    The Service has recently revised its approach to recovery planning, 
and is now using a new process termed Recovery Planning and 
Implementation (RPI) (see https://www.fws.gov/endangered/esa-library/pdf/RPI.pdf). The RPI approach is intended to reduce the time needed to 
develop and implement recovery plans, increase recovery plan relevancy 
over a longer timeframe, and add flexibility to recovery plans so they 
can be adjusted to new information or circumstances. Under RPI, a 
recovery plan includes the statutorily-required elements under section 
4(f) of the Act (objective and measurable recovery criteria, site-
specific management actions, and estimates of time and costs), along 
with a concise introduction and our strategy for how we plan to achieve 
species recovery. The RPI recovery plan is supported by two 
supplementary documents: A Species Status Assessment or Biological 
Report, which describes the best available scientific information 
related to the biological needs of the species and assessment of 
threats; and the Recovery Implementation Strategy, which details the 
particular near-term activities needed to implement the recovery 
actions identified in the recovery plan. Under this approach new 
information on species biology or details of recovery implementation 
may be incorporated by updating these supplementary documents without 
concurrent revision of the entire recovery plan, unless changes to 
statutorily required elements are necessary.

Recovery Plan Components

    The Draft Recovery Plan for Four Subspecies of Mazama Pocket Gopher 
is supported by the Recovery Implementation Strategy, which is 
available at https://www.fws.gov/wafwo/articles.cfm?id=149489725.
    The primary recovery strategy for the four Mazama pocket gopher 
subspecies is to conserve, restore, and properly manage the quantity, 
quality, and connectivity (or configuration) of their habitats to 
address habitat fragmentation, degradation, or loss, as well as to 
address other known threats, to ensure the long-term persistence and 
viability of each subspecies across its range. We may initiate an 
assessment of whether recovery has been achieved and delisting is 
warranted when the recovery criteria have been met, including 
establishment of protected Reserves managed over the long term for 
Mazama pocket gophers in each subspecies' range, with populations of at 
least 1,000 individuals and approximately 250 to 500 acres of medium- 
or high-quality habitat in each Reserve. Minimum numbers of Reserves 
required for each subspecies are as follows: At least three Reserves 
for the Roy Prairie pocket gopher; at least three Reserves for the 
Olympia pocket gopher; at least two Reserves for the Tenino pocket 
gopher; and at least seven Reserves for the Yelm pocket gopher. 
Locations of Reserves are described in detail in the draft recovery 
plan.

Request for Public Comments

    Section 4(f) of the Act requires us to provide public notice and an

[[Page 34271]]

opportunity for public review and comment during recovery plan 
development. It is also our policy to request peer review of recovery 
plans (59 FR 34270; July 1, 1994). In an appendix to the approved final 
recovery plan, we will summarize and respond to the issues raised 
during public comment and peer review. Substantive comments may or may 
not result in changes to the recovery plan. Comments regarding recovery 
plan implementation will be forwarded as appropriate to Federal or 
other entities so that they can be taken into account during the course 
of implementing recovery actions.
    We will consider all comments we receive by the date specified in 
DATES prior to final approval of the plan.

Public Availability of Comments

    Before including your address, phone number, email address, or 
other personal identifying information in your comment, you should be 
aware that your entire comment--including your personal identifying 
information--may be made publicly available at any time. While you can 
ask us in your comment to withhold your personal identifying 
information from public review, we cannot guarantee that we will be 
able to do so.

    The authority for this action is section 4(f) of the Endangered
