  • Wildlife Conservation Board Meeting Update
    At its February 22nd quarterly meeting, the Wildlife Conservation Board (WCB) approved approximately $17.9 million in grants to help restore and protect fish and wildlife habitat throughout California. Some of the 15 approved projects will benefit fish and wildlife, including some endangered species, while others will provide public access to important natural resources.  Several projects will also demonstrate the importance of protecting working landscapes that integrate economic, social and environmental stewardship practices beneficial to the environment, landowners and local communities.  For more information, please see the news release. Funding for these projects come from a combination of sources, including the Habitat Conservation Fund, the Wildlife Restoration Fund, and various bond measures approved by voters to help preserve and protect California's natural resources. Final Agenda (PDF)
