The 2003 Natomas Basin Habitat Conservation Plan (NBHCP) is available for download. Please note it is a large document and download times may be extensive.

In order to minimize download complications, the NBHCP is available for download on a chapter-by-chapter basis. Additionally, graphics and illustrations that go with the 2003 NBHCP are available for download and are listed with “fig” prefixes. Due to potential transmission losses, those viewers wanting official copies of the 2003 NBHCP should contact the Conservancy for a hard copy. This is available for standard photocopy and reproduction costs in keeping with standard City of Sacramento policies on document copies.
