Looking Back-

August 24 WCB Meeting Update-

With the approval of approximately $24.5 million in projects as described in the Final Agenda (pdf) , the Wildlife Conservation Board has taken another important step in fulfilling its mission to protect, restore and enhance California’s spectacular natural resources. Highlights of selected projects from this meeting are featured here.

2015/ 2016 Legislation and the WCB

Two pieces of legislation that affect the Wildlife Conservation Board were introduced in the 2015/2016 legislative session and subsequently signed into law by Governor Brown.

  • Senate Bill 1089 (Pavley) (PDF) expands the number of voting members on the WCB from three members to seven. Of the four additional members, two are to be appointed by the legislature and two are to be appointed by the Governor. Subject expertise is requisite of all appointees.

  • Assembly Bill 1716 (McCarty) (PDF) creates the Lower American River Conservancy Program (Program) within the WCB. The Program is to provide coordination among governmental agencies in the protection and management of natural land, water, native wildlife, and vegetation of the American River Parkway. The legislation mandates that a 12 member advisory committee comprised of representatives from local and state government be established and convene twice a year.

2016 Conservation Summit-

On September 26, 2016, The Wildlife Conservation Board (WCB) held the first WCB Conservation Summit. The public was invited to attend and all were welcome to speak. See a summary of the conversation (PDF).
