The 75-acre Locust Road Conservation Bank located in Placer County consists of vernal pools and swales, seasonal wetlands, intermittent drainage, and annual grassland habitats.

The Bank was approved by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to offset impacts to seasonal wetlands, vernal pools, vernal pool fairy shrimp, and Swainson’s hawk. The service area for Waters of the U.S. includes the Lower American River HUC (18020111) and Auburn-Ravine Coon Creek (180201610). The vernal pool creation and vernal pool fairy shrimp service area follows the above-referenced HUCs within the Southeastern Sacramento Vernal Pool Recovery Unit.
