Through bond referenda in 1978 and 1989 the majority of the County’s regional park and environmentally sensitive lands system was established. The 2000 Safe Parks and Land Preservation Bond Program provided $400 million to renovate the Parks system and acquire the remaining natural lands and open spaces for passive recreational use.
Additionally, through regulatory mechanisms, numerous wetland communities have been preserved, or their impacts have been mitigated for by on-site creation or off-site wetland banks. These wetland mitigation areas comprise a significant portion of our natural lands inventory.
The Protected Natural Lands Inventory has consolidated information on 322 sites comprising more than 16,000 acres. The inventory database provides information on parcel location, size, vegetative community, and managing authority.
