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 Habitat Conservation Plan (NBHCP). The Metro Air Park Habitat Conservation Plan is also included in the circulation. These reports extend to nearly 1,000 pages, but an Executive Summary Report is available and nicely capsulizes the highlights of this report. Past year reports are available in the “Helpful Documents > Annual Reports & Audited Financial Statements” section.
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.
