A small, flowering plant that grows only in southwest Idaho is about to go back on the Endangered Species List. Slickspot Peppergrass has been there before, in 2009, but its status as “threatened” was challenged by Governor Butch Otter.
After years of legal wrangling, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service plans to put it back on the list next month.
Slickspot Peppergrass is a hairy green plant with white flowers, and is found in just a few areas of southwest Idaho.
