Description of critical habitat of Bolander’s Quillwort in Waterton Lakes National Park of Canada

Notice is hereby given that the notice titled Description of critical habitat of Bolander’s Quillwort in Waterton Lakes National Park of Canada, published in the Canada Gazette, Part Ⅰ, Vol. 145, No. 12, Saturday, March 19, 2011, on page 964, should have read as follows:

Bolander’s Quillwort (Isoetes bolanderi) is a species listed on Schedule 1 to the Species at Risk Act as threatened. Bolander’s Quillwort is an aquatic plant that is known to occur at only three sites in Canada; these sites are entirely within Waterton Lakes National Park of Canada. Critical habitat for Bolander’s Quillwort is identified in the Recovery Strategy and Action Plan for Bolander’s Quillwort (Isoetes bolanderi) in Canada.

Notice is hereby given that, pursuant to subsection 58(2) of the Species at Risk Act, critical habitat of Bolander’s Quillwort in Waterton Lakes National Park of Canada is located within the following three sites, save and except any existing anthropogenic features that occur in these areas, such as trails. Critical habitat parcel numbers are based on the unique Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada (COSEWIC) species identification number for Bolander’s Quillwort (243), and parcel number. All coordinates below refer to the North American Datum of 1983, UTM Zone 11. Further details regarding critical habitat (including maps) can be found in the Recovery Strategy and Action Plan for Bolander’s Quillwort (Isoetes bolanderi) in Canada, posted on the Species at Risk Public Registry Web site.

Within the identified geographical boundaries, the biophysical attributes of critical habitat include the following: open, unshaded areas with cool, relatively wet climates and a short growing season (< 60 days), within the Upper Subalpine Ecoregion and between elevations of 1 950 and 2 100 m; lightly- or un-glaciated upper subalpine ponds (< 2 m deep); high water quality (clear, oligotrophic) that supports little or no vegetation other than Bolander’s Quillwort and that has a pH of approximately 7.3 to 9.1; and moist growing substrate (3 to 14 cm layer of silt and silty-sand on top of coarser sand), likely with a pH of less than 7.3. Critical habitat is identified as the body of water and the adjacent natural landscape approximately 10 m beyond the high water mark within each of the following parcels.
