Land use is often the best indicator of the current status and boundaries of endangered species habitats, particularly in areas with extensive agricultural and/or urban development. The following files show land use data by county, developed by the California Department of Water Resources. The Adobe Acrobat Reader program allows users to view the entire map and zoom in on any particular area of interest. Download the Land Use Legend text file to interpret land use codes.
