Project: Runyon Canyon Conservation Easement

Description: Acquire a conservation easement between Runyon Canyon Park and Trebek Open Space, approximately 10.2 acres (APN 5571-025-042), Curson Canyon tributary to Ballona Creek watershed, City of Los Angeles.

Reference Number: 3810P011649

Implemented By: Trust for Public Land

Objective: Funding a portion of the approximately total $2,473,000 acquisition cost of the conservation easement over 10 + acres in the Hollywood Hills between Runyon Canyon Park and the Trebek Open Space. An easement will eliminate development of up to four residential lots that would otherwise have significant impacts on this popular open space area and chaparral habitat, including loss of viewshed, park buffer, wildlife movement, and creation of impermeable surfaces with runoff and sedimentation impacts. The adjacent City of Los Angeles Runyon Canyon Park receives up to 2 million hikers and visitors annually. The property has for 30 years been listed as a priority for protection in the Runyon Canyon Master Plan. TPL has secured matching funding from Los Angeles County Proposition A funds and private fund-raising.
