Comment On Petition To List Southern California Steelhead As Endangered
Due Sept 9, 2022
CDFW has initiated a status review for Southern California steelhead and invites data or comments on a petition to list them as an endangered species under the California Endangered Species Act (CESA). The listing petition and CDFW’s petition evaluation report are available on the Commission website. Data or comments may be submitted via email to SCSH@wildlife.ca.gov. Please include “Southern California Steelhead” in the subject line.
CDFW Seeking Restoration Projects for CEQA Statutory Exemption
The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) would like to remind our restoration community that many qualified restoration projects could be exempted from the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) under Senate Bill 155. CDFW’s new Statutory Exemption for Restoration Projects (SERP) can greatly reduce project planning costs and timelines – please email email@example.com for more information or to schedule a consultation to see if your restoration project qualifies! Visit the this website for more information on CDFW’s Cutting the Green Tape Program and SERP.
