Project: Liberty Canyon 98 Acre Acquisition

Description: Acquisiton of 98 acres in Agoura Hills. This parcel is adjacent to the MRCA’s Liberty Canyon wildlife corridor properties south of the 101 Freeway and is included in the California Department of Fish and Wildlife-approved Conceptual Area Protection Plan for the Santa Monica Mountains to Sierra Madre Mountains wildlife habitat linkage. To the west lies the Triangle Ranch property. An existing fire road on the land connects to trails on adjacent public land leading to Malibu Creek State Park to the south.
