79 Homesites carefully sited on the remaining 180 acres
to avoid any environmentally sensitive habitat.

The Bay Checkerspot Butterfly (BCB) has been listed as a threatened species under the US Environmental Protection Agency’s Endangered Species Protection Program since 1987. Historically, populations of BCBs were recognized in many of the counties in the San Francisco Bay Area, but most of these populations have experienced serious decline in the last few decades due to development pressures around the Bay. Populations are now found only in San Mateo and Santa Clara counties where serpentine rock outcrops harbor the native plants the butterflies require for their survival. Protecting serpentine habitat in Santa Clara County, together with the rare and native plan species they depend upon, is essential to the protection of this important threatened species.
