Low-Effect Habitat Conservation Plan for Endangered Sandhills Species at the Clements Property, Santa Cruz County, California
We, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, have received an application from Ron Clements for a 3-year incidental take permit under the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended. The application addresses the potential for ``take'' of the federally endangered Mount Hermon June beetle and Zayante band-winged grasshopper that is likely to occur incidental to the construction of outdoor recreational facilities at a property near the unincorporated town of Ben Lomond, Santa Cruz County, California. We invite comments from the public on the application package, which includes a low-effect habitat conservation plan.
