Activists want three species listed

Herald and News 5/5/04

SALEM (AP) -- An Arizona-based environmental group has asked the federal government to place two rare frogs and a plant found along the Columbia    River onto the endangered species list.

The three Oregon species on the list include the Oregon spotted frog, which found in the Cascades from the Washington border to the Klamath River Basin, and has been an endangered species candidate since 1991.  There's also the Columbia spotter frog, which is found in Eastern Oregon and has been a candidate since 1991.

The center also suggested Northern wormwood, a plant found along the Columbia River between Hood River and the John Day River, which has been a candidate since 1985.
