Green Diamond HCP delayed by Humboldt Marten concerns
Green Diamond is also still in the process of gathering information on Barred Owls, a habitat generalist that compete with NSO for habitat, and are known to harass NSO. Addressing the complex problems that Barred Owls pose to the conservation of the Northern Spotted Owl will be an important issue to follow in the new Green Diamond NSO HCP proposal.
The new target date for release of the Green Diamond NSO HCP Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) is May or June of 2011. EPIC will continue to notify the public of important developments, and important dates related to the Green Diamond NSO HCP.
