Oak Woodlands Conservation Management Plan - Background

Oak Woodlands Conservation Management Plan - Background

According to the California Oak Woodlands Conservation Act (AB 242), Los Angeles County (County) is required to develop an Oak Woodlands Conservation Management Plan (Plan) in order to qualify for funding to preserve oak woodlands through the Oak Woodlands Conservation Fund. Accordingly, the County Board of Supervisors (Board) adopted motion 95-C on October 7, 2008, which directed the Resource Conservation District of the Santa Monica Mountains (RCD) to develop such a Plan. The RCD assembled a group known as the Oak Woodlands Habitat Conservation Strategic Alliance (Alliance), consisting of biologists, arborists, environmentalists, foresters, planners, Building Industry Association representatives, and academics. The Alliance, which represents a significant and unprecedented collaborative effort, donated over 5,000 volunteer hours and completed the Plan in May 2011. The Board adopted Part I of the Plan on August 23, 2011 and instructed the Department of Regional Planning, the Forestry Division of the Fire Department, and other affected County departments to review the recommendations made in Part II of the Plan and report back to the Board.
