Land Conservation in California

The Conservation Almanac includes comprehensive data on Local, State and Federal land conservation activity in California, a profile of state programs and policies, and a rundown of LandVote ballot measure activity.

In the tables to the right, the Conservation Almanac provides a snapshot look at land conservation in California. It includes activity from 1998 - 2008, using the two most common available metrics: public dollars spent and acres conserved.

Some parcel data collected for the Conservation Almanac cannot be attributed as a fee simple purchase or conservation easement and are labeled 'unknown' for the field purchase type. Those parcels are not tabulated in the charts to the right, but can be seen in the map portal reports on this site. Parcels labeled 'other' for transfers or exchanges are not represented on the site.
