Description: The acceptance of a U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Habitat Conservation Planning Land Acquisition grant and the approval to subgrant these federal funds to the East Contra Costa County Habitat Conservancy (ECCCHC), as well as to consider a Wildlife Conservation Board (WCB) grant to ECCCHC for a cooperative project with the East Bay Regional Park District (EBRPD) to acquire 1,159± acres of land in Contra Costa County. The bond proceeds were for the fee title acquisition as well as appraisal review and escrow fees.

Objective: The subject parcels will provide for the protection and preservation of existing regional wildlife linkages, including valley floor and foothill grassland, oak woodland, oak woodland savannah, riparian woodland, emergent wetland, and vernal pool habitat areas.
