In partnership with the Urban Corps of San Diego, and other management entities, JWA provides establishment and administrative support for long-term habitat management. Development projects with impacts to wetlands, habitat, or species are required to mitigate their impacts by preserving a portion of the development site or acquiring off-site land for conservation.

JWA is experienced with preparing PARs (long-term management budgets), negotiating habitat management plans with the agencies and local governments, negotiating management agreements and the terms of conservation easements, and assisting Urban Corps with management issues as they arise.
