HMP annual reports

Habitat Management Plan annual reports include information about habitat gains and losses in the preserve system, a summary of management and monitoring activities conducted during the reporting year, compliance with the Habitat Management Plan and Multiple Species Conservation Plan requirements, a preserve-by preserve status summary, and a financial summary. Every three years, the report will also include a summary and analysis of covered species monitoring data collected during the past three years.

Preserve management plans

A preserve management plan contains a description of the preserve, including a list of sensitive plants and animals on-site, a map of the vegetation communities which serve as habitat for native species, a description of threats to the preserve, and a plan outlining the steps that will be taken to protect the natural resources on the preserve. Below is a list of past and current preserve management plans for actively managed natural open space preserves in the City of Carlsbad.

            Annual work plans

            Annual work plans are prepared by land managers as a way of prioritizing management activities for the upcoming year. Management and monitoring tasks within the annual work plans are consistent with the most current preserve management plan, and prioritization of these tasks is based, in part,  on the results of the previous year's annual report. Below is a list of past and current annual work plans for actively managed preserves.
