Article abstract: This report summarizes the management activities performed by the Center for Natural Lands Management (Center, CNLM) at the Carlsbad Oaks North Habitat Conservation Area (HCA) during the management year beginning on October 1, 2009, and ending on September 30, 2010. The management items discussed below have been developed from the guidelines for goals and objectives set forth in Carlsbad Oaks North Annual Work Plan (CNLM 2009) and the Carlsbad Oaks North Habitat Conservation Area Preserve Management Plan (PMP) dated January 2005 (Tierra Data 2005). The HCA is comprised of four non-contiguous units separated north-south by the new extension of Faraday Avenue and east-west by the new extension of El Fuerte Avenue which ties into Faraday Avenue near the center of the HCA. The HCA is located in the east central portion of Carlsbad, northeast of the intersection of El Camino Real and Palomar Airport Roads. The HCA covers 326 acres, of which 108.4 acres are located within a conservation easement (CE) on lands owned by the County of San Diego. The CE was transferred to the Center in November of 2005. The Center received funds to manage the CE portion in May of 2006 at which time management activities commenced. The Center received fee title for the remaining 219.6 acres from the previous owner, Techbilt Construction Corporation (Techbilt), the developer of the Carlsbad Oaks North Business Park, in March of 2007. This HCA is to be managed for the purpose of preserving sensitive biological resources and to meet the City?s obligation to their Habitat Management Plan (HMP), and north San Diego County?s Multiple Habitat Conservation Program (MHCP). Management includes installing and maintaining fences and gates (capital improvements), biological surveys, habitat maintenance and restoration, public services, and reporting. Each of these activities and their fiscal year results are summarized below and fully described within this report.
