Project: Vasquez Overlook Acquisition Project

Description: Acquisition of the 39-acre Vasquez Overlook parcel (AIN#: 8684-024-001) protects one of the last remaining undeveloped private holdings along the foothill interface between the San Gabriel Valley and the San Gabriel Mountains National Monument from development, in order to support watershed restoration, community-driven stewardship, and compatible public uses. Expenditures will include the acquisition of Vasquez Overlook to be completed in early 2020, a biological survey of the parcel in Spring 2020, a land management plan for both of WCA’s Vasquez acquisitions, and pre-acquisition activities for a portion of the adjacent Vasquez Entrance parcel (APN#:8684-024-035), which would secure future access to these public conservation lands.
