This chapter reviews the current environmental policy setting for conservation and management of grassland ecosystems in California. It first summarizes the hierarchy of federal-to-local land use policies that potentially affect the use and management of California grasslands, focusing on how these policies are currently being applied to grasslands and grassland-associated species. Existing and emerging conservation incentives for private grassland managers are also examined as a complement to regulatory approaches. Policies and incentives based on the protection they afford to the biological integrity of grassland ecosystems are evaluated. Finally, the chapter offers recommendations for future policy needs and opportunities.

Keywords:   conservation, grassland ecosystems, California grasslands, private grassland managers
