The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) and the California Department of Parks and Recreation (CDPR) have prepared and adopted a Mitigated Negative Declaration
(MND) for the Cañada De San Vicente Ecological Reserve Land Management Plan in compliance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and State CEQA Guidelines.
CDFW is the lead agency and has filed a Notice of Determination to approve the project under CEQA.
PROJECT LOCATION: Cañada de San Vicente Ecological Reserve, San Vicente Road and Chuck Wagon Road, San Diego County, CA.
DESCRIPTION OF THE PROPOSED PROJECT: The purpose of the Plan is to serve as a descriptive inventory of fish, wildlife, plants, and habitat types which occur on the Reserve;
provide a guide for appropriate uses of the Reserve; and provide an overview of and vision for the Reserve’s operation, maintenance, and personnel requirements. The primary use of the
Reserve will be as protected open space and wildlife habitat, with possible public uses to include hunting, education, and scientific research. Management will focus on maintaining
viable populations of sensitive species and their habitats, and on the restoration and enhancement of natural communities within an ecosystem-based framework. Emphasis will be
placed on the protection of riparian and wetland areas, restoration and enhancement of native grassland, and the control of noxious weeds.
