Hearings on habitat designation announced The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service recently released a draft economic analysis of its proposal to designate 1,831,820 acres of critical habitat in California for the Sierra Nevada yellow-legged frog, the northern distinct population segment of the mountain yellow-legged frog and the Yosemite toad. The draft economic analysis estimates the costs associated with the designation of critical habitat to be $630,000 to $1.5 million over 17 years (2014 to 2030). With 97 percent of the proposed critical habitat designated on federal lands, the estimated costs of the designations are largely associated with federal agency consultations for actions on federal lands such as fish stocking, water operations, grazing and recreation. On April 25, 2013, the service published in the Federal Register two proposals to list and designate critical habitat for the three amphibians and opened a 60-day comment period. During and after the initial comment period, the service received several requests from the public to extend the comment period. On July 18, 2013, the service reopened the public comment period for 120 days, which closed Nov. 18, 2013. The release of the draft economic analysis opens a new 60-day comment period that will close March 11, 2014. The public is invited to submit information on the draft economic analysis as well as the proposals to list and designate critical habitat. "Comments from the public help the service make a final decision that reflects the best information available," said Jennifer Norris, field supervisor for the Sacramento Fish and Wildlife Office. "We especially want to invite businesses and economic stakeholders that operate in and around proposed critical habitat areas to carefully review and submit comments on the draft economic analysis." Comments may be submitted online at the Federal eRulemaking Portal at The docket number for the proposed listing rule is FWS-R8-ES- 2012-0100 and for the proposed critical habitat rule and draft economic analysis is FWS--RS-E S-2012-0074. Comments can also be sent by U.S. mail to: Public Comments Processing Attn: FWS-RS-ES-2012-0100 or FWS-RS-ES-2012-0074 Division of Policy and Directives Management U.S, Fish and Wildlife Service 4401 N. Fairfax Drive, MS 2042- PDM Arlington, VA 22203 The service will hold a public hearing on the proposed rules and draft economic analysis Thursday, Jan. 30, 2014, at the Sacramento Horsemen's Association, 3200 Longview Drive, Sacramento, CA 95821. The first hearing session will start at 1 p.m. with doors opening at 12:30. A second hearing session will start at 6 p.m. with doors opening at 5:30.

Beginning rarrners pr,)grarn seeking Ioc:al land to utilize The Sierra Intensive Farmer Training program is entering its second year of educating the next generation of Plumas County farmers. The program has just accepted an enthusiastic group of beginning farmers who will soon be seeking land where they can put down roots. The SIFT program helps to connect these farmers with local landowners who are interested in leasing space for food production. Ideal plots of land can be as small as one-eighth of an acre, o.r up to 5 acres or more. Access to water and decent sun exposure is essential, and fertile soils are a plus. Land can be flat or on a moderate slope, and even somevhat rocky softs can be usable. The SIFT trainees aye launching into an intensive 10-month training program starting this month, through which they will gain the business and hands-on skills needed to launch their own diversified farms. Each trainee will build a hoop house, set up irrigation systems, amend softs and possibly even plant crops and raise livestock during their first year. Though most of the farmer trainees in this year's program are located in the Quincy area, SIFT is interested in cataloging available land across Plumas County for future reference. Interested landowners are encouraged to contact Elizabeth Powell at Plumas Rural Services to learn more about farmers' needs and arrange for a site visit. Call 283-3611, ext. *839, or email food@plumasruralservices.or g for more information.
