Pollinator Habitat Conservation Along Roadways, Volume 2: California

This guide is intended to provide relevant guidance to rights-of-way owners and operators for roadside vegetation management practices that support pollinators, as well as strategies that are compliant with the Endangered Species Act (ESA). This guide will help state departments of transportation (DOTs) and other entities that manage roadsides understand pollinators generally and imperiled pollinators specifically, and it provides information on how to manage roadsides with the goal of avoiding further declines of these important species, averting the need for them to be listed under the ESA in the future. This guide will also help DOTs make informed management decisions to coordinate ESA compliance with their operations, reduce future regulatory uncertainty, contribute to pollinator conservation and recovery, and increase awareness and the associated societal values for the ecosystem services pollinators provide for agriculture and native ecosystems alike. This guide is one of 16 guides, one for each region identified based on ecoregions and distributions of pollinators.
