- Management of Preserve lands as a single ecological unit for the protection and restoration of valley oak riparian forest and freshwater seasonal wetlands;

- Protection and enhancement of benefits to declining, threatened, and endangered species of wildlife and plants;

- Protection of habitat and wintering grounds for wintering waterfowl and shorebirds of the Pacific Flyway; and

- Protection of other Preserve habitats and promotion of native flora and fauna.
