Soil amendment for native plants?

I plan on establishing a habitat garden in my Southern Californian home and I need some advice on amending my clay-like subsoil. Most of the native plants I plan to use requre good drainage but do poorly in soil with high organic matter, so how do I improve drainage without dramatically increasing the fertility or organic matter (like compost does)?
