Santa Clara Valley Habitat Conservation Plan Passed


The staff of Creekside is very happy to report that the Santa Clara Valley HCP has been passed by the City of San Jose, the final signatory needed to enact this auspicious plan to help protect and restore habitat for 18 rare plants and animals including the Bay Checkerspot butterfly, Santa Clara Valley Dudleya and a few other species that Creekside currently works on conserving. We firmly believe that preserving and properly managing serpentine environments is critical for biodiversity in the Bay Area. Please contact us with any biological questions about the plan and/or species.

The final habitat plan can be found here.
