The Natomas Basin Conservancy implements the Natomas Basin Conservancy Plan (NBHCP) to the 53,537-acre interior within the jurisdiction of the City of Sacramento, Sacramento County and Sutter County. The Conservancy is paid mitigation fees that are paid by developers of projects when they apply for building permits. We then use the mitigation fees to acquire, restore, and manage mitigation lands to provide habitat for protected species and maintain agriculture in the Basin. Since the program inception, the Conservancy has acquired approximately 30 mitigation properties totaling over 4,500 acres.
