The Laurel Canyon Land Trust has entered into a purchase and sale agreement to acquire and permanently preserve an environmentally significant parcel (approximately 9 acres) at 8516 Lookout Mountain in Laurel Canyon (APN 5567-004-014). The lot is adjacent to the 17-acre Let's Buy a Mountain parcel that was acquired in 2017 and provides valuable habitat for rare, threatened and endangered species such as our local Mountain Lion Population. The parcel is also home to an extensive walnut woodland mapped by the National Park Service.
The Land Trust has received a $1 million grant from the California Natural Resources Agency to acquire the parcel through the Environmental Enhancement and Mitigation Program ("EEMP"). But, there are still some out of pocket expenses with this acquisition and we need to raise $20,000 by May 7, 2021 to cover the initial deposit. Can you help us? This will be the eleventh acquisition project of the Land Trust since it was founded in 2017.
