       The information in this pamphlet is similar to
       what the U.S. Environmental Protection
       Agency (EPA) expects to. distribute once our
   Endangered Species Protection Program is in
   effect. The limitations on pesticide use are not
   law at this time, but are being provided now for
   your use in voluntarily protecting endangered and
   threatened species from harm due to pesticide
  use. We encourage you to use this information
  We also welcome your comments.

   The Endangered Species Act is intended to
  protect and promote recovery of animals and
  plants that are in danger of becoming extinct due
  to the activities of people. Under the Act EPA
  must ensure that use of pesticides it registers will
  not result in harm to the species listed  as
  endangered or threatened by the U.S. fish and
  WHdhfe Service, or to habitat critical to those
 species' survival. To implement the Endangered
 Species Protection Program, labels of certain
 pesticides will direct users to bulletins similar to
 this sample pamphlet. This program will protect
 endangered and threatened species from harm due
 to pesticide use.

  EPA requests your comments regarding the
 information presented in this publication. Please
 let us know whether the information is clear and
 correct. Also tell us to what extent following the
recommended measures would affect you typical
pesticide use or productivity. This information
will be considered by EPA during the final stages
of program development.

    About This Publication

     This publication contains a County Map
    showing the Area within the county where
    pesticide use should be limited to protect listed
    species. These areas are identified on the map by
    a shaded pattern. Each shaded pattern
    corresponds to a species in need of protection.
     The Shading Key shows the name of the species
    that each shaded pattern represents and often
   describes the shaded area. The area may be
   described in terms of Township, Range, and
   Section or by giving details about the habitat of
   the species.

    The first column of the "Table of Pesticide
   Active Ingredients" lists the active ingredients for
   which there should be limitations on use to
   protect certain species. The next columns are
   headed by the shaded pattern of the species with
   Codes listed underneath them.
    The Code indicates the specific limitation that is
  necessary to protect the species. The section titled
  Limitations on Pesticide Use explains the code.

    Ingredients"?
  If you answer "yes" to both questions, you
 should follow the instructions on "How to Use
