In July 2013, The Northern California Regional Land Trust acquired conservation easements on three private properties along Little Chico Creek in Butte County totaling approximately 364 acres. The project facilitated the connection of the three private properties to 170 acres of land that is already protected and owned by the Department of Fish and Wildlife resulting in the permanent protection of approximately 534 contiguous acres and one river mile of habitat within the Little Chico Creek Watershed. With funding for the acquisitions provided by the California Wildlife Conservation Board’s Oak Woodland Protection Program, the project also permanently protects approximately 309 acres of Blue Oak Woodland.
