2013-2014 Wildlife Exceptions

Exception requests that span extensive lengths of time are not fully granted because the wildlife staff cannot adequately analyze impacts over such long periods of time. Such requests are sometimes given partial grants that enable work over shorter periods of time and are then reevaluated for extensions to the original exception. This table includes the original request and each extension evaluated for each location.

COA Legend
