    Keep your eyes on the areas surrounding the Carrizo Plains National Monument in California’s San Luis Obispo county. There are already a couple of similar proposals on sensitive ground and it is less than 100 miles from this site. No big horns; just tule elk, kit foxes, burrowing owls and a host of other listed or threatened species.
