Project Review Step 3 - State Coordination

Determine whether a species from the Official Species List has been documented directly within the action area by contacting the New York Natural Heritage Program (NYNHP). If a federally-listed, proposed, or candidate species is present within the action area, you will get a report from NYNHP directing you to contact the appropriate New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC) Regional Office.  Add any NYNHP and NYSDEC correspondence that you receive to the project review package.

(A). If either agency provides documentation that a federally-listed, proposed, or candidate species is present within the action area during any part of the year, write "yes" for the species present column for the appropriate species on the species conclusions table. If the conclusion for all species on your list is “yes” for "species present," go to Step 5. Otherwise, continue to Step 4.

(B). If the agencies indicate there are no documented occurrences of a federally-listed, proposed, or candidate species within the action area, leave the species present column blank and continue to Step 4.

Please note that the NYNHP provides information on known occurrences; this information does not replace field surveys as most project sites have not been previously surveyed specifically for listed species.
