In June of 2016, the Bureau of Land Management and Friends of the Carrizo Plain hosted the Carrizo Plain Conservancy and many CPNM friends and associates on a tour for Lois Capps as she completes her years of service in Congress. Neil Havlik presented Ms. Capps with a request to petition the President to add approximately 16,000 acres in San Luis Obispo and Kern Counties to enlarge the Monument along the eastern side of the Temblor Range to include the unique Upper Sonoran Sub-Shrub Scrub community founds only in the mountains surrounding the southern end of the San Joaquin Valley.
