Project: Laurel Canyon Tributary Acquisition

Description: Acquisition of APN 5565-0030041 in the Laurel Canyon watershed of the eastern Santa Monica Mountains.

Reference Number: 3810P011632

Implemented By: Mountains Recreation and Conservation Authority

Objective: The grant request is for funding the fee acquisition of a .97 acre parcel, which is under a long term option agreement and part of an incremental six-parcel acquisition project including the MRCA and the City of Los Angeles Department of Recreation and Parks. Three of the parcels are now owned in fee by the park agencies. Keeping the properties as undeveloped open space is essential to protection of the east-west wildlife habitat linkage through the eastern Santa Monica Mountains to Griffith Park. The property may well have been the route by which P-22 traveled into Griffith Park. A yearround spring provides a water source for deer and other wildlife, but restoration of altered blueline streams and enhancements for the spring are a future project opportunity, via riparian mitigation funds currently held by the applicant. The property is at the eastern end of a several- hundred-acre protected core habitat area that includes Wilacre Canyon Park, Fryman Park, and Elrita Bowl.
