Ecological Services

The District mission is to acquire, preserve, protect, and operate regional parklands in perpetuity for public use, while conserving these lands for natural resources.  As such the District performs routine park maintenance to maintain existing facilities and structures, improve watersheds and coastal shoreline conditions.  The effects of these activities on wildlife are constantly monitored.  

The effects of routine maintenance activities on fifteen federally listed species is reviewed.  The District conducts routine maintenance activities in streams, catch basins, seeps, springs, ponds, lakes, beaches, tidal marshes, and shoreline levees. The purpose of these activities is to maintain existing facilities, protect water quality, to reduce erosion, provide public and emergency access, and maintain natural resources that support a variety of listed, special status, and other native species.
