Rogue Valley Mitigation and Conservation Bank
Jackson County, Oregon
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) and Oregon Department of State Lands (DSL) have authorized the Bank’s second credit release. To qualify for the release, the Bank met the required vernal pool and upland vegetation performance standards, and exceeded the large-flowered woolly meadowfoam plant population baseline. The Bank offers combination mitigation/conservation credits as compensation for wetland impacts permitted by USACE and/or DSL, and federally listed species including vernal pool fairy shrimp and large-flowered woolly meadowfoam as determined by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS). Contact us for a quote or for more information about the Bank or available credits.
Fremont Landing Conservation Bank
Yolo County, California
The fourth year of annual monitoring recently wrapped up at the Bank and results demonstrated that the site continues to progress toward the goal of gradually restoring the Bank’s riparian habitat to near original function. Construction and riparian plantings were completed in 2012/2013 and the Bank has met or exceeded all required performance standards to date. Fish monitoring surveys conducted by the Fishery Foundation of California annually from 2013 through 2016 revealed the presence of Chinook salmon in the engineered channels.

Preservation and Restoration credits are available now; please contact us for a quote or for more information.
California Tiger Salamander (CTS) Conservation Banks
Wildlands biologists continue to monitor three central California CTS Banks: Sand Creek Conservation Bank in Tulare County, Deadman Creek Conservation Bank in Merced County, and Great Valley Conservation Bank in Merced County with favorable results. CTS monitoring is conducted under the authorization of a federal permit with permission from U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in order to add California Department of Fish and Wildlife as a signatory agency to the existing federally approved banks. Surveys have consistently revealed the presence of CTS on each Bank site. Click below for recent photos and video of CTS observed at the Sand Creek Conservation Bank. Contact us for more information about vernal pool preservation, CTS breeding and CTS upland credits available at the Banks.
