The 160-acre Campbell Ranch Conservation Bank lies adjacent to the Jepson Prairie Reserve and north of the Dixon Pools National Landmark in Solano County. The federally listed vernal pool tadpole shrimp (Lepidurus packardi) and vernal pool fairy shrimp (Branchinecta lynchi) are protected under a conservation easement over the bank’s beautiful mosaic of grassland, northern claypan vernal pools, alkali swales and depressions, and seasonal wetlands. Campbell Ranch was approved as a conservation bank by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service in 2005 and provides preservation credits for vernal pool tadpole and fairy shrimp.
Stay tuned because RES is currently working with federal and state agencies to approve the adjacent land as a bank and bring new credits for the California tiger salamander, Northwestern Pond Turtle, Swainson’s hawk, and burrowing owl.
