The Forum has developed a Programmatic Safe Harbor Agreement (PSHA) for landowners within or adjacent to the Sacramento River Conservation Area (view map).
The primary goal of the PSHA is to reduce the uncertainty of future land management options for private landowners with existing or potential endangered species habitat. It is meant to remove regulatory disincentives that currently prevent landowners from carrying out actions that may benefit species in the riparian ecosystem. Under this agreement, the fear of attracting new wildlife onto private properties is eliminated, thus providing security for the landowner's investments while improving conditions for wildlife, resulting in a "win-win" situation.
