The state’s plan caught the local Fish and Game Commission by surprise earlier this month. And the local board wasn’t happy about it.
The commission’s board members voted unanimously to oppose the California Department of Fish and Wildlife plan designed to protect critical habitat for the mountain yellow-legged frog.
