The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) as part of an interagency effort is accepting comments on the draft biennial update to the National Wetland Plant List (NWPL) for 2018. The draft update was published in the June 10, 2019 Federal Register and allows for public comment on the proposed update or addition of wetland indicator status ratings for 20 plant species in select USACE wetland regions. Input in the form of data, comments, literature references, or field experiences, will be used to clarify the status of the species reviewed for this update, as well as public input on the NWPL process. The 20 reviewed species and their draft 2018 wetland ratings by region, as well as the Federal Register notice, can be viewed at the NWPL homepage under "2018 NWPL Update Information."  Comments and information received on or before August 9, 2019 will be compiled and sent to the NWPL National Panel for consideration.
