2004 Sonoma County report reveals intentions to make all Paulin Creek a preserve

A 2004 report The Paulin Creek Preserve Management Plan detailed the wonders of Paulin Creek and was to guide the City of Santa Rosa and the Open Space District in management of Paulin Creek.

The plan clearly stated that all three parcels were apart of the Paulin Creek Preserve and not just the two which are currently protected as open spaces. After much talk nothing was ever done to protect parcel J which along with parcels N, O, and P make up the Paulin Creek Preserve.
