Boden Canyon ER Land Management Plan


Location: The Boden Canyon Ecological Reserve is currently composed of approximately 1,221 acres of land located within central San Diego County.

Purpose of Acquisition: To protect and enhance habitat for plant and wildlife species; to provide crucial wildlife linkages in San Diego County, as identified in the San Diego Sub-Regional Plan of the Multiple Species Conservation Program; and to provide the public with compatible, wildlife related recreational uses.

Description*: Protect, restore, and enhance habitat for sensitive species, including riparian, oak woodland and scrub habitats; contribute to the regional multi-species plans in biological resource monitoring, research and education; and manage existing public use opportunities, including upland game hunting.

*Implementation of tasks needed to achieve goals is dependent on the availability of staffing and an adequate operations and maintenance budget.

Environmental Review Process

As lead agency, the California Department of Fish and Wildlife prepared an Initial Study-Mitigated Negative Declaration (IS/MND) for the Land Management Plan (LMP) for the Boden Canyon Ecological Reserve. The IS/MND has been prepared to provide the public, responsible agencies, and trustee agencies with information about the potential environmental effects of implementation of the Boden Canyon Ecological Reserve LMP.
