30x30 Becomes Law

On October 7 Governor Newsom signed Senate Bill (SB) 337, establishing the statewide goal to conserve at least 30 percent of California’s land and coastal waters by 2030 (30×30). This legislation establishes the goal in statute, ensuring that it will remain a commitment for future administrations through 2030. The three primary objectives of 30×30 are to conserve and restore biodiversity, expand access to nature, and mitigate and build resilience to climate change. Accomplishing these objectives will assist the Task Force in ongoing efforts to improve forest health to manage the risk of wildfire.
