BLM announces that the Forest Service has applied to BLM asking the Interior Secretary "to withdraw, for 20 years, subject to valid existing rights, approximately 4,203 acres of Federal lands in the San Bernardino NF from location and entry under the United States mining laws in order to maintain and conserve habitat for four listed threatened and endangered species (Cushenbury buckwheat, Cushenbury Milk-vetch, Cushenbury oxytheca, and Parish's daisy). The application also requests that approximately 440 acres of non-federal lands within the boundaries of the lands proposed for withdrawal be included in the withdrawal if they are acquired by the United States. This notice temporarily segregates the lands for up to 2 years from location and entry under the United States mining laws, but not from the mineral material sales or mineral or geothermal leasing, to protect the biological resources while the withdrawal application is being processed." | Text
