Connector Between L.A.'s Angeles Forest and Santa Susanna Mountains is Donated to State




MAJOR L.A. WILDLIFE CORRIDOR PINCHPOINT PARCEL TO BE SAVED

March 2007: Browning-Ferris Industries (BFI) owns approximately 1200 acres of
vacant land in Elsmere Canyon and has offered to donate the northerly 400 acres
to the Mountains Recreation and Conservation Authority. This property connects the thousands of acres of parks in the Santa Monica Mountains, Simi Hills and Santa Susana Mountains with the Angeles National Forest and parks in the east half of L.A. County! This pinch point is just north of Sylmar and Granada Hills and south of Santa Clarita.

The Elsmere parcel is in the center of the map below, immediately east of the 14 freeway icon. The green shaded land is public parkland. The red shaded parcels are from a year 2000 map of proposed purchases by the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy. (click on maps to enlarge)
