Each year, the Conservancy must file an Implementation Annual Report with the state and federal wildlife agencies as well as to all “parties” to the Natomas Basin Habit Conservation Plan. These reports extend to nearly 1,000 pages, but an Executive Summary Report is available, and nicely capsulizes the highlights of this report. The 2011 report is available by clicking on the image adjacent.
The latest Conservancy land acquisition, the “Richter tract,” adds 80 acres to the organization’s Central Basin Reserve Area. This is the portion of the Natomas Basin where rice production is the dominant land use.
