Quino Checkerspot Butterfly Addition


The County is preparing an amendment to add the Quino checkerspot butterfly (Quino) to the list of species covered by the County Subarea Plan of the MSCP.  The Quino, federally listed as endangered in 1997, was not originally included as a covered species because too little was known about the Quino when the County Subarea Plan was adopted.  The amendment package will include conservation policies, an adaptive management and monitoring strategy, and a funding plan.
