AGENCY: Fish and Wildlife Service, Interior.
ACTION: Notice of teleconference.
SUMMARY: We, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service), announce a
public teleconference of the Joint Implementation Working Group
(Working Group) for the National Fish, Wildlife, and Plants Climate
Adaptation Strategy (Strategy). The purpose of the Strategy is to
inspire and enable natural resource professionals and other decision
makers to take action to conserve the nation's fish, wildlife, plants,
and ecosystem functions, as well as the human uses and values these
natural systems provide, in a changing climate. At this meeting, the
Working Group will review the first Strategy Implementation Progress
Report, discuss future approaches to implementation, hear comments from
stakeholders, and make plans for the Fall-2014 in-person meeting.
With this notice, we also initiate the Working Group's recently
approved Stakeholder Engagement Plan, which commits the Working Group
to open meetings going forward. This will be the only announcement of
meetings made in the Federal Register. All future meetings (including
logistical information) will be made only via the Strategy Web site
DATES: The Working Group will meet via teleconference on September 15,
2014, from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. If you wish to submit written information
