  • Projects must be reviewed and supported by the California Department of Fish and Wildlife.
  • Project improvements should be designed to ensure long-term life, with minimal repairs, maintenance and upkeep.

  • Projects that accommodate multiple wildlife-oriented public access uses.
  • Projects with matching funds, with 50% being the preferrred amount.
