The Natomas Basin Conservancy was incorporated on October 21, 1994, as a California Non-profit Public Benefit Corporation. The organization is governed by a 10-member Board of Directors, and currently employs six full-time staff.
The Conservancy works closely with the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, the City of Sacramento, County of Sutter and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to fulfill the requirements of the Natomas Basin Habitat Conservation Plan (NBHCP).
The Conservancy acquires and manages land for the purpose of meeting the objectives of the Natomas Basin Habitat Conservation Plan.
The Conservancy envisions implementing the NBHCP in a manner that successfully meets the Plan’s biological goals, makes efficient use of fee payer funding.
Goal & Objectives
The Conservancy will maintain itself as an effective organization, and will at all times be capable of serving as the NBHCP’s plan operator.
- Apply principles of sound science in the creation and management of habitat reserves.
- Review and focus on the NBHCP long-term finance model to ensure the Conservancy is financially capable of fully performing its plan operator responsibilities.
- Seek opportunities to help insure the long-term persistence of species covered under the NBHCP.
