Habitat Assessment

A habitat assessment will be conducted by a Qualified Biologist to determine whether the project area contains suitable habitat (including foraging, nesting, and dispersal habitat) for the rail. If suitable habitat for this species is identified and the proposed project may affect suitable habitat, the Project Proponent will implement measures LFRR-1, LFRR-2, and RAILS-1 through RAILS-6 in areas with suitable habitat. Alternatively, the Project Proponent may propose to conduct surveys to confirm the presence or absence of the species.
