Notice of Application for Withdrawal and Opportunity for Public Meeting; San Bernardino, CA
The United States Forest Service (USFS) filed an application with the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), requesting the Secretary of the Interior to withdraw, for 20 years, subject to valid existing rights, approximately 4,203 acres of Federal lands in the San Bernardino National Forest (SBNF), California, from location and entry under the United States mining laws in order to maintain and conserve habitat for four listed threatened and endangered species (Cushenbury buckwheat, Cushenbury Milk-vetch, Cushenbury oxytheca, and Parish's daisy). The application also requests that approximately 440 acres of non-Federal lands within the boundaries of the lands proposed for withdrawal be included in the withdrawal if they are acquired by the United States. This notice temporarily segregates the lands for up to 2 years from location and entry under the United States mining laws, but not from the mineral material sales or mineral or geothermal leasing, to protect the biological resources while the withdrawal application is being processed. This notice also provides the public an opportunity to comment on the proposed withdrawal application and to request a public meeting.
