Reserve Managers Coordinating Committee


The primary mission of the RMCC is to promote coordination of SKR management throughout the core reserve system, and address regional management issues of importance to species recovery in the Habitat Conservation Plan (HCP) area. The RMCC's primary responsibilities are:
  • Coordinate SKR habitat management programs by individual reserve managers to ensure the achievement of overall HCP management objectives
  • Recommend regional SKR management goals and programs to the RCHCA Board of Directors
  • Evaluate, within the context of overall HCP implementation, SKR habitat management and biological monitoring plans conducted within the core reserve system
  • Make recommendations to the BLM and RCHCA concerning potential land acquisitions for expanding the core reserve system


Membership of the Reserve Managers Coordinating Committee (RMCC) consists of a representative from each of the entities having responsibility for management of lands within the SKR core reserves, as well as the RCHCA, County of Riverside, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services, and the University of California Cooperative Extension. The existing core reserve land managers currently include:
  • Bureau of Land Management (BLM)
  • California Department of Fish and Game
  • California Department of Parks and Recreation
  • City of Riverside, Parks and Recreation Department
  • Metropolitan Water District of Southern California
  • The Nature Conservancy

The County of Riverside also participates in its capacity as the jurisdiction having authority over land use in the vast majority of core reserve properties.
