The following documents received on August 14, 2019 in the County Clerk's Office

Document Type: NOTICE
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has completed in-depth reviews of two species that may occur in your area - the Tri-colored blackbird and Joshua tree. For both species, we determined that listing is not warranted.

Ongoing partnerships and management of public and private lands are helping to ensure the long-term conservation of these species.

The Service determined the Tri-colored blackbird does not warrant listing under the Endangered Species Act due to on-going conservation efforts with a number of partners that have enabled the species to remain resilient. 

We determined there are two species of Joshua tree - Yucca brevifolia and Yucca jaegeriana; both of which are commonly referred to as Joshua tree. We analyzed both taxa and determined neither species needs protection under the ESA because species distribution mapping shows there has been no major reduction or contraction in Joshua tree populations during the last 40 years. We looked at a variety of factors including: wildfire, drought, and climate change. 

A copy of these findings is on public view today at the Federal Register, and can be accessed online at: https://s3.amazonaws.com/public-inspection.federalregister.gov/2019-17536.pdf
