What is the Habitat Plan Reserve System?
Land preservation is an important component of the conservation strategy established in the Habitat Plan. The term land preservation is intended broadly to specify the acquisition of terrestrial and aquatic land cover types. Land will be acquired from willing sellers in fee title or through establishment of conservation easements to create the Habitat Plan Reserve System (see Habitat Plan Figure 5-7, Land Acquisition Strategy). The Reserve System will protect an estimated 46,920 acres for the benefit of covered species, natural communities, biological diversity, and ecosystem function.
