Dutchman Creek Conservation Bank is a 501-acre vernal pool landscape located in Merced County, California. The bank contributes to a larger natural lands matrix comprised of several existing conservation banks, conservation easements, and the Merced National Wildlife Refuge, totaling over 10,000 acres focused on the safeguard of species and their habitats.
Approved by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, the bank offers credits to offset impacts to vernal pool animals such as the conservancy fairy shrimp (Branchinecta conservatio), vernal pool tadpole shrimp (Lepidurus packardi) and vernal pool fairy shrimp (Branchinecta lynchi). Credits are also available for San Joaquin kit fox (Vulpes macrotis mutica), breeding and non-breeding habitat for the California tiger salamander (Ambystoma californiense), Western spadefoot toad (Spea hammondii), Western burrowing owl (Athene cunicularia) and foraging habitat for Swainson’s hawks (Buteo swainsoni).
