THE COLTON DUNES PROJECT

Our 150-acre Colton Dunes property in Colton, CA contains a substantial portion of the largest remaining contiguous block of habitat left for the Delhi Sands Flower-Loving Fly (DSFLF), a pollinating insect that plays an important role in the region's ecosystem. In 2006, in partnership with the Riverside Land Conservancy and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, we agreed to conserve the entire 150-acre property and began the restoration of approximately 40 acres of property to create a mitigation bank for public works projects and local development, which was completed in 2009.

 

In an effort to ensure that the DSFLF would survive as a species, we volunteered to restore the additional 110 acres of the property, beginning in 2010.

 

To learn more about the process required to restore the site, see prior stories about the conservation and restoration of the site in our 2009 Sustainability Report.
