Protect Camp Parks
Protecting habitat for burrowing owls and other wildlife
from urban development at Camp Parks Reserve Forces Training Area
The U.S. Military's Camp Parks Reserve Forces Training Area in Dublin is is one of the relatively undeveloped portions of the Livermore-Amador Valley and is home to several endangered, threatened and rare wildlife species. On the base is the largest and one of the few remaining colonies of breeding western burrowing owls in the valley. Camp Parks also supports golden eagles, has potential foraging habitat for the endangered San Joaquin kit fox, and breeding habitat for the threatened California red-legged frog and California tiger salamander. The Alameda Creek Alliance is working to protect populations of special-status species on the site such as burrowing owls and endangered amphibians.
The Alameda Creek Alliance secured a conservation agreement in 2014 with the City of Dublin and Dublin Crossing Venture that will protect 313 acres of burrowing owl habitat on or as close as practical to Camp Parks. The agreement resolves a lawsuit filed over the Dublin Crossing Project, a 189-acre residential and commercial development on former Camp Parks land just north of the East Dublin BART station.
