San Antonio Valley Ecological Reserve Land Management Plan

Project Description and Location

The approximately 3,000 acre San Antonio Valley Ecological Reserve (SAVER) is composed of blue oak and valley oak woodlands and chaparral east of Mount Hamilton. It is located in Santa Clara County.  The Ecological Reserve is within the Mount Stakes U.S. Geological Survey 7.5-Minute Quadrangle. SAVER lies between the northern boundary of Henry Coe State Park and south, east and west of private agricultural lands. The northwestern boundary is adjacent to State Route 130 or San Antonio Valley Road. The major watersheds crossing SAVER are San Antonio and Jump Off Creeks.

The principal natural resource management consideration for the SAVER is to maintain the mosaic of terrestrial and aquatic habitats, including blue oak and valley woodlands, chaparral, stock ponds, seasonal creeks, and foothill pine uplands, that will benefit many species of wildlife and plants. The LMP also focuses on the management of wildlife-related recreational activities that are compatible with the diverse mosaic of habitats.
