Views on protecting species offered Tues.

Citizen Staff Writer

Environmental groups will offer their views Tuesday on a county plan to protect more local species than are on the federal endangered species list.

The Coalition for Sonoran Desert Protection, which represents 35 local, state and national environmental groups, will present the county’s Multi-Species Habitat Conservation Plan at an open house.

The plan is a final part of the Sonoran Desert Conservation Plan, which aims to protect swaths of environmentally sensitive desert from development. The multispecies part would protect 36 species. There are about 19 county species on the endangered list.

Tuesday’s open house is 5:30-7:30 p.m. at Randolph Golf Course Clubhouse. The county asks that public comments on the plan be submitted by March 2, though another public comment period will follow later this year when the county completes an environmental impact statement on the multi-species plan.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
