230 Acres Critical Habitat In San Francisco For Franciscan Manzanita

Bay Nature I reported  U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service  declared 230 acres of San Francisco critical habitat for the Franciscan manzanita (Arctostaphylos franciscana). This plant is famous for the rediscovery of a single plant in the wild that was  found in San Francisco and relocated in  2009. Bay Nature reports:

The rule published Friday requires that federal development projects within the habitat area go through an environmental review. The rule doesn’t affect private landowners — unless, of course, they decide to take up a federal development project in their backyard. The designation covers parts of McLaren Park, Bayview Park, Diamond Heights, Mount Davidson, Twin Peaks, Corona Heights, Inspiration Point, Immigrant Point and Fort Point.
