    Description

    Thirty-six hectares (90 acres) of riparian forest, high terrace oak woodland-savanna, and upland vernal pools were preserved along Arcade Creek in Sacramento, California as a result of citizen involvement in a city-sponsored master plan process for Del Paso Regional Park. Citizens formed an organization and called for a comprehensive Environmental Impact Report to evaluate project impacts, and to develop commensurate measures to avoid and mitigate environmental damage. The organization used the CEQA process to provide city staff, consultants, and City Council members with detailed proposals for accommodating development and preserving critical natural habitat. These proposals were largely adopted by city staff and the Council. The City is making the park available for academic research intended to promote restoration of the park's disturbed habitat. The citizen's organization is pursuing natural habitat designation for the park's biologically sensitive tracts that remain unprotected.
