Final Round ISRP Comment:
This proposal meets the ISRP review criteria and benefits wildlife. The ISRP, however, suggests that the sponsor address the following comments to improve the project. The ISRP does not need to see a response to these suggestions but encourages integrating responses for subsequent review.

The rare shrub steppe habitat is an important acquisition. The ISRP recognizes that the authors have focused on key species in this rare habitat. The proposal could be improved by better describing the parcels of lands that would serve to connect lands already in public ownership. The ISRP wonders if these lands are available for purchase and how these lands supplement current land ownership. Additionally, the ISRP recommends finalization of a monitoring and evaluating plan, once the land is acquired.
