To identify areas and organizations involved in Natural Community Conservation Plans within the state of California. Due to overlapping polygons, to accurately view this layer, turn polygon fill to hollow. Habitat Conservation Plans are included for reference purposes only.
This shapefile contains Natural Community Conservation Plan (NCCP) and selected Habitat Conservation Plan (HCP) boundaries in California. This layer is unofficial and may contain boundaries that are no longer active. Please confirm the status of boundaries before using them in maps and analyses. Some boundaries may be estimated.
NCCP's take a broad based approach to protect habitats and species. The program began in 1991. An NCCP identifies and provides for the regional protection of plants, animals, and their habitats, while allowing compatible and appropriate economic activity. Working with landowners, environmental organizations, and other interested parties, a local agency oversees the numerous activities that compose the development of an NCCP. CDFW and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service provide the necessary support, direction, and guidance to NCCP participants. For more information on NCCP's please see https://www.wildlife.ca.gov/conservation/planning/nccp .
