Central Valley LCP: Priority Natural Resources

The Central Valley Conservation partnership is working to assess the vulnerability of a common list of Priority Natural Resources to climate and non-climate stressors, so we can then develop adaptation strategies and actions. Habitats and species groups cover multiple species, and the remaining individual species are those which will require their own assessments and strategies.
