    California Fish & Game Commission Meeting on Joshua Trees

    The California Fish & Game Commission will meet with only two main agenda items: 1) to consider and potentially act on the petition to list the western Joshua tree as threatened in California under CEQA; and 2) if the "candidacy" for listing is approved, to determine under what circumstances the trees may be "taken" (removed) during the required one-year review of the listing. Here is the information you need: the agenda and how to virtually attend the meeting and make your comments.
