Los Angeles County, California
Mountains Recreation & Conservation Authority
England|Ecology was retained by IECG to complete a biological resources assessment for a proposed Mountains Recreation and Conservation Authority park in the Santa Monica Mountains of Los Angeles County. The Mission Canyon Regional Park project envisions formalizing a multi-benefit regional trail on a former 500-acre landfill. With a subcontracting botanist and jurisdictional specialist, England|Ecology completed a one-day field survey in early July. The biological resources assessment included vegetation community mapping, species presence/absence determinations, an analysis of project effects, and proposed mitigation measures.
