Posted: Updated:

FRANKLIN COUNTY, Wash.- The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services has closed the public comment period on their decision regarding whether the White Bluffs bladderpod should be listed as a threatened species.

U.S. Fish and Wildlife are now reviewing all the comments they received, and will make a final decision by November 22, 2013. 

They will ultimately decide whether to list the plant as endangered or not. 
If they decide to list the plant as a threatened species, they will then decide how much area will be considered critical habitat.
