Grant to The Trust for Public Land (TPL) to purchase and preserve a conservation easement over portions of the 7,300-acre Montesol Ranch in far Northern Napa County. TPL will transfer the easement to the Land Trust of Napa County (LTNC). The conservation easement will protect the natural resources of at least 7,000 acres of the Montesol Ranch while allowing agriculture and retention of existing residential development on an approximately 300-acre area. By numerous measures, the property is one of the most important properties for protection in the Blue Ridge-Berryessa Natural Area (BRBNA), a 800,000-acre conservation area of national significance. Located in the shadow of Mount Saint Helena, Montesol is the single largest privately-owned property in Napa County.
