CDFW, as Lead Agency, approved the Final Land Management Plan for the Mouth of Cottonwood Creek Wildlife Area in compliance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and State CEQA Guidelines.
Project Description and Location
The MCCWA is located in Shasta and Tehama counties and totals 1,059 acres. The area has been acquired through a series of transactions by the Wildlife Conservation Board and CDFW. The MCCWA is managed by CDFW for its natural resources and for the public's use and enjoyment of those resources. The MCCWA contains three units: the Cottonwood Creek Unit and two Balls Ferry Wetland Units. The primary purpose of the Land Management Plan (LMP) is to establish goals and guidelines for the operation, maintenance, and public use of the area. CDFW will use the LMP to help guide the specific tasks for managing the habitats, species, cultural resources, facilities, appropriate public uses, and various other activities that occur in the area.
Public Review Period
The Initial Study / Negative Declaration was circulated for public review and comment for a period of 30 days from December 6, 2010 to January 4, 2011. The IS/ND described the project and its potential impacts on the environment, and concluded that the proposed project would not have any significant effects on the environment.
