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.
