Description: In California, hundreds of different public and private organizations are involved in prioritizing and acquiring new conservation lands (California Environmental Dialogue 1999, California Continuing Resources Investment Strategy Project 2001). Although the State of California owns less than 3 percent of the land (Davis and Stoms 1998), it plays a significant role in the conservation of biodiversity, public open space, and commodity production. State government funding for land acquisitions and conservation easements comes from a variety of sources, including special funds, park-related bonds, and water-related bonds. Although bonds provide considerable public funds for conservation, they fall short of what most agencies and conservation groups believe is required to meet even short-term demands for farmland, open space, and habitat conservation (California Environmental Dialogue 1999). Thus, competition for these public funds is intense, and State funding agencies must make decisions in what are often acrimonious public forums.
