ANNOUNCEMENTS Regarding Public Feedback on Pathways to 30×30

From the California Natural Resources Agency:

As we enter the new year, the California Natural Resources Agency (CNRA) is eager to continue our collaboration to protect biodiversity, advance equitable access to nature, and build climate resilience across California. Today we are reaching out with several important updates including the extension of the public comment period for the draft of the Pathways to 30×30 strategy, the upcoming 30×30 Advisory Committee meeting, a new virtual meeting to provide feedback, and the CA Nature GIS applications.

Public Feedback Period Extended through February 15, 2022

On December 15, 2021, CNRA released the draft of Pathways to 30×30: Accelerating Conservation of California’s Nature for public review and feedback. Members of the public are now invited to provide their comments through Tuesday, February 15, 2022.

There are multiple ways you can send your comments and feedback by February 15:

CA Nature: Note to Reviewers

Thank you for the great feedback we have received thus far regarding the CA Nature GIS applications. Please be aware that the conserved areas data set is comprised of self-reported data, and not all protected areas are properly documented (see page 26 of the draft Pathways to 30×30 document). Thus, CA Nature contains protected areas whose conservation status could not be determined from immediately available data. We are aware of several areas that appear to meet our textual definition of conservation but are not currently counted as conserved in CA Nature. If you are a landowner or land manager with direct knowledge and supporting information about specific sites that may be misclassified, please complete this survey to initiate a review. The results of these reviews will inform future updates to CA Nature and help us track progress to 30×30.
