The Kanaka Valley Management Plan was developed through a community-based planning process. Kanaka Valley is located in western El Dorado County, California. The habitat consists of a mixture of chaparral, oak woodland and riparian vegetation types.
Kanaka Valley has a high diversity of plants and animals; some of the rare plant species that grow there are found nowhere else in the world.
More on the Kanaka Valley . . .
The Kanaka Valley is 695-acres of diverse plant and animal habitat. The property provides a wildlife corridor that links federal and state public lands along the South Fork American River and protected lands of the Pine Hill Preserve. There are 269 acres of blue oak woodland, interior live oak woodland and valley oakwoodland as well as 24 acres of riparian habitat along Jill’s Creek and Crocker Creek.
The public lands in Kanaka Valley will be managed to conserve in perpetuity its various terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems; to protect unique biological, historical/prehistorical and cultural values; and to enhance plant and wildlife habitats to be sustainable, fire-safe, healthy and diverse.
