Description: Acquisition of three or more Carbon Canyon Creek parcels, each approximately 4.5 acres

Reference Number: 3810P011633

Implemented By: Mountains Recreation and Conservation Authority

Objective: Funding the fee acquisition of a minimum of three 4.5-acre parcels out of ten potential parcels, all of which include a section of USGS blueline stream in the Carbon Canyon watershed. All of the potential parcels, offered by a willing seller(s), lie within the Los Angeles County-designated Santa Monica Mountains Significant Ecological Area (SEA). The canyon’s coastal riparian woodland habitat and year-round water source are exceptional natural values to be conserved. MRCA owns 27 acres of protected land in the vicinity. Acquisition of three or more parcels would also assist implementation of a superior Coastal Slope Trail alignment, which could be accessed from an MTA bus stop on Pacific Coast Highway.
