|California State University, Stanislaus (CSU Stanislaus) is located in California's Central Valley and serves a 6-county area: Calaveras, Mariposa, Merced, San Joaquin, Stanislaus, and Tuolumne. In 1992, the Endangered Species Recovery Program (ESRP) was established at CSU Stanislaus, with the support of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Bureau of Reclamation. ESRP's mission is to facilitate endangered species recovery and resolve conservation conflicts through scientifically based recovery planning and implementation.|
From 2001-2008, ESRP operated a native plant seed production program in support of efforts to restore retired agricultural lands in western Fresno County, California. Seeds of native species were collected from areas of remnant habitat in the western San Joaquin Valley and planted in a field nursery, to increase available seed supplies through field propagation. The plant species that were propagated are not state or federally listed as threatened or endangered.
