    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 Wildlife
 Service,  or to habitat critical to those
 species'  survival. To accomplish this, the
 EPA expects to implement program
 requirements beginning in 1991. 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 drop us a line to let us
 know whether the information is clear and
 correct. Also tell us to what extent
 following the recommended measures
would affect your 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
   The Shading Key shows the name of the
 species that each shaded pattern represents
 and 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.

How To Use This Information

1) On the county map, find the specific shading patterns
   that cover the area where you will apply pesticides.

2) Read the shading key for those patterns to identify
   the specific area involved.

3) In the "Table of Pesticide Active Ingredients," locate
   the active ingredients in the pesticide you intend
   to apply.

4) Locate the code to the right of the active ingredient
   name and under the shading patterns that apply
   to you.

5) When using the pesticide, you should follow the
   limitations indicated for those codes described under
   "Limitations on Pesticide Use."

6) If you are applying more than one listed active
   ingredient or applying a listed active ingredient in
   an area with more than one shaded pattern (species),
   multiple codes may apply.  If  so, you should follow
   the most restrictive limitation.
