Stream Flow Enhancement Program - 2019 Proposal Solicitation Notice

Wednesday, July 10, 2019

The Wildlife Conservation Board's 2019 Proposal Solicitation Notice (PSN) for the Stream Flow Enhancement Program is now available. Proposals for multi-benefit projects that result in enhanced stream flow are encouraged. Enhanced stream flow is defined as a change in the amount, timing, and/or quality of the water flowing down a stream, or a portion of a stream, to benefit fish and wildlife. The primary focus is on enhancing flow in streams that support anadromous fish; support special status, threatened, endangered, or at-risk species; or provide resilience to climate change.

Proposals must be received by 5:00 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time, on September 10, 2019. For questions, contact the Stream Flow Enhancement Program at wcbstreamflow@wildlife.ca.gov.

Draft Strategic Plan Update

Tuesday, July 2, 2019

The Wildlife Conservation Board is updating its 2014 Strategic Plan, and the link opens in new windowDraft Strategic Plan Update (PDF) is available for review. The 2014 Plan goals, objectives, and strategic approaches have served to guide WCB activities over the last five years. While an update to the Plan is required under current law, changing wildlife, fisheries and State conservation policies have prompted WCB to consider refreshing Plan objectives to better deliver new and existing programs in the context of these changes. The Plan Update will rely on the fundamentals of the existing Plan while defining more focused measurable objectives tailored to emerging conservation priorities and a strategic path forward.

Note this Draft Plan Update has yet to be edited and formatted. Public comments will be assessed and a final Draft Plan Update will be provided to the Board for consideration and approval in August. Please provide any comments to climateWCB@wildlife.ca.gov by close of business July 31.

Thank you for your input.
