Project: CVCC Snowcreek Watershed Acquisition

Description: Acquire 479.23 acres in the Snowcreek Windypoint and Santa Rosa and San Jacinto Mountains Conservation Areas of the CVMSHCP.

Reference Number: 38500000P010020

Implemented By: Coachella Valley Conservation Commission

Objective: Acquire property containing critical watershed and biological movement corridors that link and connect to two other biological corridors: Stubbe and Cottonwood Canyons, and the Whitewater River. The corridors provide sand transport via Stubbe Canyon Wash and the Whitewater River, retain connectivity in the Snow Creek area and provide for large mammal movement between the San Jacinto and San Bernardino Mountains. Additionally, the corridors directly connect north to the San Gorgonio River, providing fluvial and aeolian sand transport for the blowsand habitats within these areas and the Whitewater Floodplain Conservation Area, farther to the east.
