Ongoing Current FY 2007 U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Washington State University, Soil and Water Conservation Districts, Nez Perce Tribe, Universities or Colleges, Natural Resource Conservation Service, Private Landowners, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Other Labor type not yet selected This action and associated costs will be completed through Action 2.2 below. At the 2014 Technical Team meeting the Team nominated KCAs (these included ones that may have already been identified in the Recovery Plan as well as new ones that have been located or are now considered potentially suitable). These nominations are being informed by the recent genetic data. At the 2017 Tech Team meeting, 26 KCAs total were identified as being suitable (although 2 of these require more informaton which will be collected in 2017-2018). As of 2017, there are 2 potential KCAs identified in this region including Paradise Ridge/Gormsen Butte KCA and Steptoe Butte KCA. The Kramer Palouse Biological Study Area has also been suggested as a potential site but more work needs to be done in order to fully consider this area. Work is being done to conserve and enhace these areas so that they will meet KCA criteria in the recovery plan. Some of these actions include: Over a 4 year period (08-11), IDNHP conducted site assessments of potential Palouse Grassland remnant areas in Latah County, ID (part of a 4-phase project to identify, document, and conserve Palouse Grassland remnants and survey for SISP and its habitat in Palouse Grasslands physiographic region). The Paradise Ridge/Gormsen KCA consists of ~ 225 acres. All of the area was surveyed and 40 small, scattered patches, totaling ~15 acres, of good condition (<15-20% weed cover) Palouse Grassland remnants representing SISP habitat were documented; these remnants were surrounded by very weed areas (>50% weed cover). No SISP plants were found in this KCA. The 4th and final phase of this project is to protect and conserve these areas. Multiple landowners with Palouse Prairie remnants have expressed interest in having Silene planted on their property. These plantings were conducted in fall 2013, spring 2014, fall 2014, and spring 2015. As of spring 2015, the Latah Soil and Water Conservation District (Latah SWCD) has planted 753 Spalding’s Catchfly (Silene spaldingii) on Palouse Prairie remnants within the Paradise Ridge/Gormsen Butte Key Conservation Area in Latah County, Idaho. Specifically, 170 were planted in fall 2014 and 200 were planted in spring 2015. These plantings have been conducted across 4 different landowner sites In Fall of 2015, 281 SISP plants were planted on Paradise Ridge (2 landowner sites) and in the spring of 2016 99 plants were planted on Paradise Ridge (1 landowner site). A subset of these plantings at each landowner site were mapped and are being monitored to determine planting success. Recovery Land Acquisition funding (~$500,000) was awarded to the Palouse Land Trust in 2014 to buy 62 acres and place a conservation easement on another 16 acres within the Paradise Ridge/Gormsen Butte Key Conservation Area. In addition, recovery funding was provided to the Palouse Land Trust to place a conservation easement on 21 acres with a SISP population. Additional PFW funding was obtained to restore 24 acres of CRP to native prairie that is adjacent to the SISP. This Palouse remnant identification project is now being conducted in Nez Perce County. In 2016 INHP continued assessing grasslands that were delineated using GIS in Nez Perce County, Idaho with permission from private landowners. Native grassland communities including Spalding’s catchfly habitat, were mapped. No new Spalding’s catchfly occurrences were found during these assessments. This work Nez Perce county is ongoing. In 2017, both of these KCAs (Paradise Ridge/Gormsen Butte and Steptoe Butte) received some of the Turnbull NWR CRI grant funding to continue to enhace these KCAs and initiate the long-term monitoring at these sites that is required in the Recovery Plan.

Provided funding for seed collection to Dave Skinner for a grow-out project in Idaho. Unfortunately Dave was unable to complete the project. In summer 2012 the seeds and funds were given to the Latah Soil and Water Conservation District by the Service to support the grow-out and seed increase of Silene spaldingii. Previously collected Silene seed from a variety of sites was given to Pleasant Hill Farm in Deary, Idaho for grow-out into container plants. In summer 2013 Pat Mason (co-owner of Pleasant Hill) successfully grew approximately 700 Silene plants. In early summer 2013, 200 of these plants were planted in Thorn Creek Native Seed Farm’s seed increase plot. These plants are a source for Silene seed. The remaining plants produced from Pleasant Hill Farm are used for plant-out efforts on Palouse Prairie remnants. Multiple landowners with Palouse Prairie remnants have expressed interest in having Silene planted on their property. See 1.5.1.

The Service in WA finalized a PFW agreement with the Palouse-Clearwater Environmental Institute titled, "Shoring up Spalding's catcfly at Rose Creek Preserve - Washington" to safeguard a out-planting of catchfly at Rose Creek from a invasion of exotic, annual grasses in 2013. They also developed in June 2013 a plan to provide weed control and buffer populations of Silene spaldingii at Pitt- and Whelan Cemetery populations, as part of funded PFW agreement finalized last year with the Palouse Conservation District. In 2015 and 2016 hairy vetch and yellow starthistle were hand pulled around Spalding’s catchfly plants within EO 38 (Tenmile Canyon) to improve habitat quality. This EO is on private land. Monitoring plots were established in 2015 and assessed in 2016 prior to weeding.

Ongoing Current FY 2007 U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Tribal governments, U.S. Forest Service, Department of Defense , Universities or Colleges, State Land Management Agencies, The Nature Conservancy, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Bureau of Land Management Research: Reintroduction Contract The Latah Soil and Water Conservation District, Idaho Natural Heritage Program, USFWS, Thorn Creek Native Seed Farm, Pleasant Hill Farm, the Palouse Land Trust, and others have been supporting an ongoing grow-out and seed increase program for Silene spaldingii. Monitoring of these outplantings will increase our understanding of the most effective way to reintroduce Silene in the Palouse region. Peter Lesica in Montana was also previously funded to conduct a grow-out and outplanting study at the Dancing Praire site. This project has been completed and a report is in preparation (2013). The results were also published (Lesica and Divoky 2014).
Spalding's Catchfly Final Recovery Plan F 1 Idaho Fish and Wildlife Office (208) 378-5243 Spalding's Catchfly Silene spaldingii 1 2.5.2.3 Develop guidelines to ensure genetic conservation during supplementation, re-introduction, and introduction activities.

The project purpose is to collect leaf samples from Silene spaldingii populations throughout the range of the species, and analyze those samples with microsatellite and cpDNA markers to address two primary information needs. First, how is genetic variation distributed among populations across the range of the species; i.e., which populations are most genetically similar and dissimilar? The answer to this question will be used to refine the identity of KCAs across the range of the species originally identified in the recovery plan. It will also be used to guide translocation and population enhancement efforts for small populations. Second, can we identify populations with low genetic diversity? The answer to this question would be useful in recovery prioritization. This was a 3 phase project. The work was conducted by the Abernathy Fish Technology Center (FWS) with assistance from species expert Peter Lesica and Karen Colson. In 2013 and 2014 we collected 433 samples from 16 sites, developed 10 microsatellite DNA markers for this species, and analyzed all samples with these markers. The third, and final, phase analyzed chloroplast DNA (cpDNA) markers in a subset of the samples (n = 270 individuals). Abernathy attended the 2014 North American Congress for Conservation Biology to present the current Silene genetics work and results. This work was published in 2016 (Lesica et. al 2016). These results will help inform the location of our KCAs.

Two new KCAs were nominated at the 2014 Tech Team meeting. They included Mud Springs on Nez Perce NF land with a total of 1,400 plants. One issues is a potential land trade of this area to a timber company. The other is the Lower Imnaha on Wallowa NF land with ~300 (although that is probably an underestimate). However, at the 2017 Tech Team meeting Mud Springs was combined with Center Ridge KCA due to proximity of these two populations. Schoolmarm Peak was recently identified as a 5th KCA option for this region. Curently there are ~200 documented plants (likely more) and the havitat quality is good. Futher survey work is being conduted at this site in 2017-2018.

Partially Complete FY 2007 Other Fairchild Air Force Base, Spokene District, U.S. Bureau of Land Management, Swanson Lakes Wildlife Area, Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, Turnbull National Wildlife Refuge, Weed Management Areas, Private Landowners, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Research: Population Surveys Labor type not yet selected This action and associated costs completed through Actions 2.3.1.5, 2.3.2.2.1, 2.5.2 (and sub-actions), 2.6 (and sub-actions), 2.7 (and sub-actions). An few additional KCAs were proposed at the 2012 Tech Team meeting. One is called North Twin Lakes. North Twin Lakes A has about 200 plants, and North Twin Lakes B, which is a new (2011) location for Silene spaldingii, has about 400 plants. But these have recently been included as part of the Swanson Lake KCA. The other is called South Sprague. It supports about 270 plants. This BLM parcel is adjacent to state lands that may also support Silene spaldingii, but that has not been surveyed. There is sufficient acreage of appropriate habitat present, though some recorded sites have declined in the past decade. The final proposed KCA is Packer Creek w ~160 plants. This BLM parcel is adjacent to private lands that may also support Silene spaldingii. Some private lands in the area were surveyed in anticipation of possible land acquisition by BLM (which did not occur) and Silene spaldingii was found. This area might be able to meet the KCA criteria in the future, but would need a commitment to protection of the plant on private lands, and might also need enhancement. Turnbull National Wildlife Refuge could also be a potential KCA (could be up to 500 plants). As mentioned in 1.3.1, at the 2017 Tech Team meeting we looked at all the best available information on all sites in the Channeled Scablands and successfully identified 9 potential KCAs for this region including Greater Telford KCA, Coal Creek, Crab Creek, Fishtrap, South Sprague, Lick Creek, Warner Gulch, Turnbull NWR KCA, Philleo Lake KCA. This includes 2 more KCAs for this region than required in the Recovery Plan. Some of these KCAs are combinations of populations previously proposed as KCAs due to proximity. The Turnbull and Philleo Lake KCAs are being enhanced (Turnbull) and created (Philleo Lake) due to funding acquired in a 2017 CRI grant. Work includes supplementing and creating these KCAs and associated weed control, monitoring, and pollinator studies.

The Lost Trail National Wildlife Refuge KCA has conducted surveys and found additional plants on adjacent state lands (2013). The Idaho FWS also provided $11,540 in recovery funds to conduct an augmentation project at Lost Trail so that the population on Federal lands meets the KCA requirement of 500 plants or more and to ensure that population is genetically viable (as per the recent genetic results). At the 2014 Tech Team meeting the Technical Team nominated KCAs (these included ones may have already been identified in the Recovery Plan as well as new ones that have been located or are now considered potentially suitable). This was informed by the recent genetic data. A fourth KCA was identified at the 2014 meeting as a potential KCA: Sullivan Gulch (Flathead Reservation); 7,500 plants. We are currently working with representatives from the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes on both the Sullivan Gulch KCA and Crosson Valley KCA. We now have all 4 potential KCAs indentified in MT.

The results were summarized in 2012 (Taylor, R. V. and S. J. DeBano. 2012. Insect pollinators and predators of Spalding’s catchfly (Silene spaldingii) of the Zumwalt Prairie, Oregon. The Nature Conservancy, Enterprise, OR. http://shrvl.com/4096v). In addition, pollinator observations were made during the 2008 field season at four locations near the Joseph Creek site located on Nez Perce Tribal lands (China Garden Creek, Eagle Creek, Rice Creek, Asotin Creek). One of the findings was that Silene appears to be serviced by a single bumblebee pollinator. Washington Natural Heritage Program has been doing initial pollinator observation and collections for this species, as well as a literature review (2010). In addition, Dr Tim Hattin (University of Idaho) is creating spatially explicit models for grassland bee pollinators of the Inland Pacific Northwest and we've recently been working with him to include Silene sites to inform our pollinator information for this species (2014). In 2014 the IFWO funded Tim Hatten with Invertebrate Ecology to continue his research on the pool of native bee pollinators of Silene spaldingii habitat within the Channeled Scablands of eastern Washington and to analyze relationship between S. spaldingii visitors and patch-level floristic variables as well as landcover ($24,785).

In Oregon: surveys and invasive plant inventories at Deadhorse Ridge ($7,300) were conducted by the Wallowa-Whitman National Forest (W-WNF). The project is near an existing population at Clear Lake Ridge on TNC property. The project in 2009 found new plants on both on W-WNF lands and private land that is within a W-WNF allotment. Also in Oregon, in 2011, a new population was found - the first OR BLM population/occurrence of this species - near the Grande Ronde River, near Flora (22 plants). Surveys are on-going throughout the range. BLM Spokane District in 2014 surveyed over 1,000 acres for additional occurrences and found 6 new occurrences. The INHP has been assessing it's SISP EOs (2016 update). This action occurs annually throughout the range of the species. We are currently working on making sure all new populations are reflected in the state databases.

In Washington, WSU is conduted surveys for SISP at the Asotin Wildlife Management Area (2010), and the Umatilla NF and WNHP conducted inventory on state land in Asotin Co in 2015 (Smoothing Iron and Bracken Ridge areas. The WNHP also has 2 Rare Care sighting reports from 2015 which are negative surveys to old sites in the Palouse, Whitman County. And the botanist for the Palouse Conservation District located a new healthy population on Steptoe Butte in the Palouse (2016). In Montana: In 2009 section 6 funds were used by the Montana Natural Heritage Program to survey areas in northwestern Montana on State Land at a site near Plains MT and one along Cow Creek near Libby. Neither appeared to contain suitable habitat. Also surveyed were areas in northwestern Montana on State Land at Black Lake wi the Tobacco Plains and 4 new EOs were located. Survey and monitoring efforts in 2010 focused on the Flathead Indian Reservation via a research permit from the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribe, and on re-visiting known occurrences on Reservation lands. These surveys resulted in the location of new occurrences of the species in the Sullivan Gulch area, approximately 7km from the nearest known occurrences in the Niarada area (over 500 plants). This action occurs annually throughout the range of the species. We are currently working on making sure all new populations are reflected in the state databases.

Ongoing Current Other State Heritage Programs, Natural Resource Conservation Service, Private Landowners, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Research: Population Surveys Labor type not yet selected In Idaho, as part of the Latah Co. Palouse Praire Remnant project, surveys have been conducted on private land for SISP. 2011 represented the fourth and final year of this project. The next step is to work w willing private landowners to conserve SISP or introduce SISP onto their property. In 2015 INHP began assessing grasslands that were delineated using GIS in Nez Perce County, Idaho with permission from private landowners. They will map Spalding’s catchfly habitat in addition to other native grassland communities. Also, in 2013 under a contract with ITD Idaho Natural Heritage Program resurveyed four Palouse Prairie remnants south of Moscow for Spalding’s catchfly, and didn’t find any. In addition, from 2006-2008 > 3000 sites across > 400 hectares of bunchgrass prairie habitat were systematically surveyed on the Zumwalt Prairie Preserve in Idaho. TNC also surveyed 17 ha of its Clear Lake Preserve in 2009. In Montana, survey activity is occurring (2010) on the Dancing Prairie Preserve (2011 results not yet available). In Oregon, in association with the Oregon Department of Agriculture (ODA) monitoring of Silene populations at Wallowa Lake key conservation area, surveys on private land near Wallowa Lake will be conducted in 2011 and 2014. In WA, populations at Kramer prairie KCA were monitored. and conducted presence/absence of Silene at WSU Smoot Hill Reserve, Whelan Cemetery and Pitt Cemetery August 2012.

In the Palouse, we are working with multiple private landowners on SISP conservation. In 2015, the State of Idaho was awarded $454,475 to help recovery of Spalding's catchfly in Latah County. The protection of these properties, totaling 333 acres, will contribute to the recovery of Spalding’s catchfly, and other species of conservation need in this endangered ecosystem. A similar project to map Palouse remnants and potentially outplant Silene plants in currently being undertaken in Nez Perce Co, Idaho. Also in the Palouse, the Service in WA has conducted several conservation actions: Conducted monitoring at Kramer Prairie KCA with WSU and conducted presence/absence surveys of Silene were conducted at WSU Smoot Hill Reserve, Whelan Cemetery and Pitt Cemetery August 2012. Found individuals only at Whelan Cemetery although cursury observations have reported individuals at Pitt Cemetery in August 2012. Also finalized a PFW agreement with the Palouse-Clearwater Environmental Institute titled, "Shoring up Spalding's catcfly at Rose Creek Preserve - Washington" to safeguard a out-planting of catchfly at Rose Creek from a invasion of exotic, annual grasses in 2013. In 2015 and 2016, to improve habitat quality, hairy vetch (Vicia villosa) and yellow starthistle (Centaurea solstitialis) were hand pulled around Spalding’s catchfly plants within EO 38 (Tenmile Canyon), which is on private land. Monitoring plots were established in 2015 and assessed in 2016 prior to weeding. In June 2013 developed a plan to provide weed control and buffer populations of Silene spaldingii at Pitt- and Whelan Cemetery populations, as part of funded PFW agreement finalized last year with the Palouse Conservation District.
