Many land owners today are simply unaware of the fact that their private land falls under not only local laws and regulations, but also several state and federal regulations. Unfortunately, this unawareness has often resulted in complete negligence to the land, further leading to the degradation of resources such as creeks and landscapes. “A SLO Land Owners Guide to Natural Resource Regulations” was created to provide the basic knowledge of the different regulations that govern landowners of San Luis Obispo County, with the intent to increase the compliance to the different laws and regulations.
