Recovery Strategies

Recovery Strategy for the Butternut (Juglans cinerea) in Canada

The Species at Risk Act (SARA, Section 37) requires the competent ministers to prepare recovery strategies for listed extirpated, endangered or threatened species. Butternut was listed as Endangered under SARA in July 2005. The Minister of the Environment and the Minister responsible for the Parks Canada Agency are the competent ministers for the recovery of the Butternut. Environment Canada led the development of this recovery strategy working in cooperation with the Parks Canada Agency. It has also been prepared in cooperation with the National Butternut Recovery Coordinating Team, the governments of Ontario, Quebec and New Brunswick. All responsible jurisdictions reviewed and supported the request to post the strategy.

Consultation period: 2010-06-23 to 2010-08-22
