Environmen​t Canada Recovery Planning Documents on the Species at Risk Public Registry

On June 9, 2014, Environment Canada posted the following recovery planning documents on the Species at Risk (SAR) Public Registry...

  • Recovery Strategy for the Dense Blazing Star (Liatris spicata) in Canada [Proposed]
  • Recovery Strategy for the Kentucky Coffee-tree (Gymnocladus dioicus) in Canada [Proposed]
  • Action Plan for the Forked Three-awned Grass (Aristida basiramea) in Ontario [Proposed]

A recovery strategy is a planning document that identifies what needs to be done to stop or reverse the decline of a species.  An action plan identifies the projects or activities needed for the recovery strategy to be successful.  After the public comment period of 60 days, Environment Canada will then review comments and integrate them as appropriate, after which the final version of the recovery strategy will be posted on the SAR Public Registry.

The proposed Recovery Strategy for the Dense Blazing Star in Canada can be found here;   

The proposed Recovery Strategy for the Kentucky Coffee-tree in Canada can be found here;

The proposed Action Plan for the Forked Three-awned Grass in Ontario can be found here.

Detailed information on other species at risk, recovery strategies, and the Species at Risk Act is available on the SAR Public Registry at   http://www.registrelep-sararegistry.gc.ca/default_e.cfm.  (Click on “Public Consultations” to access proposed recovery documents).

These documents will remain on the registry for a 60-day comment period ending August 8, 2014.
