The Coachella Valley Conservation Commission (CVCC) in Palm Desert announced that it has secured $2 million to acquire land from willing sellers as part of its commitment to conserve undeveloped desert and preserve precious habitat. The funding was announced by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, which awarded the grant through the Cooperative Endangered Species Conservation Fund. The grant awarded was the maximum amount allowed. The CVCC, a sister agency to the Coachella Valley Association of Governments, celebrated the final approval of the Coachella Valley Multiple Species Habitat Conservation Plan in October 2008. The 75-year plan outlines a path to conserve nearly 240,000 acres of land valley-wide and protect 27 plants and animals, including Peninsular bighorn sheep, desert tortoises and the Coachella Valley fringe-toed lizard.
