West Yolo hills seek ‘conservation area’ status
FROM THE WEST SACRAMENTO NEWS-LEDGER — AUG 1, 2012 —
The office of Senator Barbara Boxer announced last month that she had introduced legislation to create a 319,000-acre “Berryessa Snow Mountain Conservation Area” from a region that spans the counties of Yolo, Lake, Mendocino and Napa.
“The Berryessa Snow Mountain region is one of California’s treasures,” she was quoted, “and this bill will help ensure that it is protected for future generations to enjoy.”
[adrotate group=”9″] The new designation would put all the land into one management plan to better protect it, said Boxer’s office.
