Santa Monica Mountains Counservancy (Paul Edelman 310-589-3200)
This project acquired a two block area space of property in the Santa Monica Mountains to preserve 849 acres of wildlife and riparian habitat within the Santa Monic Mountains National Recreation Area and reaches of Corral Canyon Creek.
The Santa Monica Bay Watershed encompasses 55 miles of coastline and beaches and covers 182,000 acres. The entire Watershed has approximately 200 separate storm drain outlets that convey over 30 billion gallons of runoff to the Santa Monica Bay each year. This project aimed to improve habitat along one such reach.
