The Bank's functional goal is to maximize benefits to existing vernal pool habitat to aid the recovery efforts for the vernal pool fairy shrimp (Branchinecta lynchii) and other vernal pool endemic species.
The Bank is undergoing annual maintenance and monitoring to ensure long-term success. Long-term protection of the Bank is ensured with a permanent conservation easement and non-wasting endowment.
