09.13 001

After the successful progression past petrol-based energy and with the new ability to desalinate ocean water on an industrial scale, Californians begin to reestablish long-broken habitat systems, creating food sheds of wild resources that support a population of over 80 million people.

01. Yontocket. In a post-national-park-service California, when all the dams have been destroyed, local control is turned over to councils that identify as native, whose aim is to feed future generations with surplus.

02. Siskiyou. One of the most prolific sites of Salmon harvesting in the world, taking advantage of populations that quickly rebound at the end of the 21st century.

03. Marble Mountains

04. Trinity Wilderness

05. Yolla Bolly. With the successful introduction of Roosevelt Elk to this part of the wilderness. This area becomes a meat store of great success and sustainability.

06. Six Rivers

07. Shasta

08. Lava Lands

09. Modoc Mountains. Reclaimed from the Warner Mountains.

10. Sacramento Headwaters. After the removal of the Shasta Dam, the Fir and Cedar forests north of Redding become a land abundent in game, both fish and elk. The area becomes a major food shed.

11. Achomawi. Pit River healing lands.

12. Smoke Creek Basin

13. Lassen

14. Kings Coast

15. Tuleyome. Along with Sacramento Headwaters, Tuleyome become a major source of wild food in the early 22nd century. This former National Monument has rebounded after 100 years of protection and nearly 50 species have been removed from the endangered species list.

16. Tehama Ishi

17. Sierra Nevada Ecological Area. No longer divided, the Sierra Nevada is a singular unit of wildlife remediation.

18. Sierra Valley Wetlands. After cattle are removed as a major food source for Californians, the Sierra Valley flourishes as an exotic hunting ground for the harvesting of abundant fowl that reclaim this extensive watershed.

19. Wine Lands. Major agricultural area.

20. Russian River

21. Wine Lands Agricultural Area

22. Sutter Buttes Biodiversity Reserve

23. Tahoe Basin

24. Tamalpais Coastal Prairie Elk Lands

25. Grizzly Bay Wet Lands

26. Delta Lands

27. Chawse Oak Gardens

28. South Bay Water Gardens

29. Big Basin

30. Ohlone Oak Wilderness

31. Salinas Farm Lands. Up and down the California Coast, massive soil-less and water-less sea lettuce farms produce enough food to feed not only all of California’s 80 million people, but the world population, which crosses 10 billion.

32. Panoche Tule Herd Lands

33. Fresno Bee Lands

34. Inyo Bristlecone Reserve

35. Pimkolam Coastal Ranges

36. Condor Reserve

37. Tule Juniper Herd Lands

42. Iwihinmu (Mount Pinos)

43. Tehachapi

44. Owens Lake Recovery Site

45. Amargosa. Death Valley National Park doubles in size as a desert ecology reserve of six million acres.

46. Antelope Valley herd reserve lands. Wildharvesting recovered herd of Antelope and Tule Elk with traditional hunting techniques becomes the primary source of meat as every family is licensed with an acceptable take of one, two or three head depending on need.

47. Victor Valley. With the advent of desalinated water, Victor Valley yields agricultural production equivalent to the Great Valley in the 20th century.

48. Santa Monica Mountains

49. Mojave Desert Ecology and Military Reserve Complex

50. San Gabriel Mountain Reserves

51. San Gorgonio Bighorn Lands

52. Joshua Tree

53. Cahuilla Mountains
