AGENCY:

Fish and Wildlife Service, Interior.

ACTION:

Notice of availability; request for public comments.

SUMMARY:

On July 22, 2019, we, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, announced via a Federal Register notice the availability for public comment of a low-effect habitat conservation plan (HCP) for the desert tortoise in San Bernardino County, California. Our Federal Register notice inadvertently did not give the correct contact name and phone number and incorrectly identified the HCP as the High Desert Power Project. The correct name is the High Desert Solar Project. In this notice, we correct those errors. We also wish to provide an additional source for the public to use to access the documents. Finally, while the original end date for the comment period was August 21, 2019, we are extending the comment period to August 26, 2019, because of the errors in our original notice.

To ensure consideration, please submit your written comments by August 26, 2019.
