APIF-related Activities



Planning time is here again and will this time be focused on Freshwater Marshes. We have only a handful of habitats left to address before our first "official" draft of the Arizona plan will be complete in January 1999. Thank you to everyone who sent in comments on the second draft and for those of you that have participated in planning meetings! Your support is making this plan possible.

Our next conservation planning meeting will be held on July 9, 1998 from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm in the Roadrunner room of the Phoenix Game and Fish offices. I thought it only fair that you all get to experience July in Phoenix with me!! If you need directions to the office, please call me at (602) 789-3575. Below are some possible priority bird species that we will be discussing for freshwater marsh habitat. Please bring information that may aid our discussion on marshland habitat (dominant plant species, importance of marshes, management issues etc.) and on the following bird species:

Yuma Clapper Rail Marsh Wren

California Black Rail Northern Harrier

American Bittern Yellow-headed Blackbirds

Least Bittern

The Arizona Game and Fish Department endeavors to ensure the accessibility of its meetings to all persons with disabilities. Persons with a disability may request a reasonable accommodation, such as a sign language interpreter, by contacting Margie Latta at 789-3575. Requests should be made as early as possible to allow time to arrange the accommodation.
