Aquatic Habitat Conservation Plan unveiled
Sensitive and at-risk ‘water-dependent’ species, such as the western snowy plover, are proposed for coverage under our draft Aquatic Lands Habitat Conservation Plan. The draft HCP is designed to protect 29 sensitive, threatened and endangered aquatic species—several listed under the federal Endangered Species Act. Learn more about the species, the plan, and offer comments on the environmental analysis. All documents are on DNR’s webpage.
