1st Admin Draft BRCP

The first administrative draft of the Butte Regional Conservation Plan (BRCP) is posted below. This document is the first complete working draft of the BRCP and is a work-in-progress. The Stakeholder Committee and Wildlife Agencies are in the process of reviewing and providing comments on these documents. A second administrative draft will be developed later in 2011/early 2012 incorporating comments received on this first draft, followed by a public draft BRCP in mid-late 2012. Please note that sections related to Butte County meadowfoam are still under development, as are the cost and funding estimates (Chapter 8).
