Species of Conservation Concern

Vivid blue-colored flowering plant growing in rocks.

Phacelia nashiana, aka Charlotte's phacelia

As part of the forest plan revision process we compile a list of Species of Conservation Concern (SCC) for each forest. Developing a SCC list is required by the 2012 Planning Rule, and helps us determine if there is a concern about a particular species' capability to persist within the forest. If there is a concern, we design elements of the forest plan to provide the habitat conditions that will enable the species to persist on the forest.

The materials below display the SCC lists and the information we considered in determining whether a species satisfies the criteria that must be met to be an SCC. Each forest has documents that show the information we considered in determining whether a species satisfies the criteria that must be met to be considered an SCC.
