Action Plan for the Forked Three-awned Grass (Aristida basiramea) in Québec

The Forked Three-awned Grass (Aristida basiramea) is an annual grass mostly found in sandy, acidic, dry and bare environments, as well as on exposed sandstone outcroppings. There are 19 populations of Forked Three-awned Grass found in Canada with eight in Quebec and 11 in Ontario. The Forked Three-awned Grass was listed as Endangered on Schedule 1 of the Species at Risk Act in 2005. The Minister responsible for the Parks Canada Agency and the Minister of the Environment are the competent ministers for the recovery of the Forked Three-awned Grass. The Minister of the Environment has prepared this action plan for the Quebec populations of the species to implement the recovery strategy, as per section 49 of SARA. It has been prepared in cooperation with the Government of Quebec. This action plan follows from the Recovery Strategy for the Forked Three-awned Grass (Aristida basiramea) in Canada.
