This Chapter of Division 2 of the Fish and Game Code of California, known as the Wildlife Conservation Law of 1947, establishes the Wildlife Conservation Board and a single and coordinated program for the acquisition of lands and facilities suitable for recreational purposes, and adaptable for conservation, propagation, and utilization of the fish and game resources of the State. The Chapter sets out conditions and procedures for land acquisition for wildlife purposes. The Board shall investigate, study, and determine what areas within the state are most essential and suitable for wildlife production and preservation, and will provide suitable recreation; and shall ascertain and determine what lands within the state are suitable for game propagation, game refuges, bird refuges, waterfowl refuges, game farms, fish hatcheries, game management areas, and what streams and lakes are suitable for, or can be made suitable for, fishing and hunting. The Board shall authorize the acquisition of real property, rights in real property, water, or water rights as may be necessary to carry out the purposes of this Chapter.
