The Lower Colorado River Multi-Species Habitat Conservation Program provides the basis for compliance with the Federal Endangered Species Act by the federal and non-federal entities involved in on-going and future water and power operations on the Lower Colorado River. For the California participants, the Program also provides the basis for compliance with the California Endangered Species Act for the California species and activities covered by the Program. The Program provides for the creation of over 8,100 acres of riparian, marsh, and backwater habitat for the species covered by the Program, and includes plans for the rearing and stocking of over 1.2 million fish to augment populations of endangered fish. The Lower Colorado River Multi-Species Habitat Conservation Program has an active Steering Committee in place that selects Conservation Opportunity Areas utilizing an Adaptive Management Selection Criteria. Once sites have been selected the acquisition process is initiated. Proposition 84 funds will be utilized for land acquisition in the program planning area by the Wildlife Conservation Board (WCB) and the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) to make California state lands available to the Program for restoration and conservation. CDFW has completed a Conceptual Area Protection Plan (CAPP), required by the WCB for acquisitions, in the Palo Verde Valley. As projects are selected in line with the CAPP, funds will be awarded through the WCB.
