Description:
Abstract:
The California Wilderness Coalition (CalWild) identifed important of linkages throughout California for wildlife movement. Further information about the project can be found at www.calwild.org/resources/pubs/linkages/

Purpose:
The CalWild linkages dataset was incorporated into the Napa County Baseline Data Report as an indication of important wildlife linkages within the county and how the county fits in a larger landscape of wildlife movement.

Supplemental information:
California Wilderness Coaltion (CalWild).  2001.  Missing Linkages:  Restoring Connectivity to the California Landscape.  The CalWild Linkage Map identifies three major wildlife movement corridors in the County: the Napa
River, the Blue Ridge-Berryessa Natural Area West, and the Blue Ridge-Berryessa Natural Area East
(Map 4-2).
The Napa River Corridor is characterized by open water, freshwater, brackish, and salt marsh. It
serves as an important north-south corridor for many riparian-associated birds, mammals, amphibians,
and reptiles. However, its greatest ecological importance may be its use by numerous fish species
moving from the estuary to the upper Napa River watershed.
The Blue Ridge-Berryessa Natural Area West Corridor is characterized by oak woodlands and
chaparral, and includes riparian areas along Putah Creek and its tributaries. This corridor provides
connectivity between the Knoxville, Berryessa and Central Interior Valley Evaluation Areas. In addition,
it connects the County with some areas in southern Lake County.
The Blue Ridge-Berryessa Natural Areas East Corridor is the least disturbed of the corridors. Like the
Blue Ridge-Berryessa Natural Areas West Corridor, it is characterized by oak woodlands and chaparral,
as well as riparian areas along Eticuera Creek and lower Putah Creek. This corridor provides migration
and dispersal areas along the Blue Ridge-Berryessa Range. The Blue Ridge-Berryessa Naturals Areas
West and East Corridors are utilized by mountain lions as well as by numerous other species.

Data Quality Information:


Lineage:
Process step:
Process description:
Imported the CalWild Linkages dataset into a Geodatabase and select linkages that intersect with the county and 
Regional wildlife movement areas in the County were identified using a three-step process.
1. An existing map of landscape linkages prepared by the California Wilderness Coalition (California
Wilderness Coalition 2001) was first reviewed.
2. Qualitative analysis of the distribution of natural areas in the County was then undertaken, with
particular emphasis along these linkages.
3. The distribution of habitat groupings in the County was analyzed qualitatively to identify linkages for
species that depend on these habitat groupings for movement corridors (e.g., black bears [Ursus
americanus] may move along riparian corridors between patches of coniferous forest).
