APHIS Assessment Finds No Significant Environmental Impact for Conservation Program Designed to Support the Southwestern Willow Flycatcher

The United States Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) has prepared an environmental assessment (EA) and finding of no significant impact (FONSI) for a conservation program to benefit the endangered Southwestern willow flycatcher, a small, neotropical migrant bird that nests and feeds in willow and non-native saltcedar (tamarisk) trees along rivers in the Southwestern United States. The EA examined the environmental effects of proposed conservation measures and determined that they will not have significant impact on the quality of the human environment. Based on the finding of no significant impact, APHIS will not prepare an environmental impact statement. The EA and FONSI can be viewed on the Regulations.gov website: http://www.regulations.gov/#!docketDetail;D=APHIS-2018-0064
