This Management Plan has been prepared to guide Tijuana River National Estuarine Research Reserve (NERR) in fulfilling its mission of estuarine resource protection over the period 2010-2015. This plan also serves as the Comprehensive Management Plan for the Tijuana Slough National Wildlife Refuge, which comprises the northern portion of the Research Reserve. The Comprehensive Management Plan (CMP) prepared in 1990 for the Tijuana Slough NWR was developed using a consensus-based planning process involving the Tijuana River NERR Advisory Council, staff members of the Operating Agencies (CSP and FWS), and community members. This collaborative process marked an innovation in the preparation of NERR and NWR management plans and continues to reflect the planning agencies' commitments to public and community involvement in decision-making through the update process for this 2010 CMP document.
