The Conservation Plan for the Sacramento Mountains Checkerspot Butterfly (Euphydryas anicia cloudcrofti) (butterfly) was finalized on November 1, 2005.  On November 7,  staff from the New Mexico Ecological Services Field Office and the Regional Office convened the Implementation Coordination Committee (ICC) for the butterfly in the Sacramento Ranger District's office, Lincoln National Forest, Cloudcroft, New Mexico.  We established and memorialized the ICC and selected primary and backup points-of-contact from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Village of Cloudcroft, Otero County, the Forest Service, and the University of New Mexico.  The ICC will also be inviting New Mexico State Forestry, the Mescalero Apache Tribe, and New Mexico State University to participate.  The meeting provided an opportunity to discuss conservation actions that have been implemented and a variety of funding opportunities.  The ICC also hosted a public outreach seminar on the evening of November 7, 2005, where doctoral student presented research results from the 2004 and 2005 field seasons.
