Abstract : In accordance with Section 7 of the Endangered Species Act, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (F&WS) has identified several concerns regarding the American Peregrine Falcon and its critical habitat in their biological opinion, dated 29 May 1979. In general, these concerns result from the implementation of the Lake Sonoma Master Plan and its related activities and include increased traffic, trespass onto private lands, potential development and habitat degradation. This document describes the analyses of alternative actions considered to address the concerns identified by F&WS. Actions within the existing authority of the Corps of Engineers have been taken to address the concerns and objectives of conserving the endangered falcons and protecting their critical habitat. Several alternative enhancement plans requiring additional Congressional authority have also been evaluated herein. (Author)
