CANYON OAKS

This 27-acre conservation easement protects oak woodland, riparian habitat and grassland in the foothills east of Chico in Butte County. It was donated in 2003 by a developer in order to fulfill a mitigation requirement by the City of Chico to preserve a large population of Butte County checkerbloom (Sidalcea robusta), a rare plant from the mallow family.
