The endangered list

8 Aug

Here is the list of all the threatened and endangered species that may have a range that intersects with the property.   I’ve cross-checked against several lists on the net and pulled out only those species that may conceivably be in our area.  We should get all cottage goers interested in looking for signs of anything on the list.  I’ll be posting fact sheets for each of these here over the next few weeks.  I’m also making up a book of pictures and fact sheets to leave at the cottage for any other armchair naturalists – to see if they can find any of the species listed.
