Riverfront land saved on Calif-Ariz Border...

290 Acres Saved along the Colorado River


from TPL's Land & People Spring 2009 issue

In another year-end (2008) transaction, TPL acquired 290 acres along the lower Colorado River near Blythe. California. The land could have become a waterfront subdivision, but the California Department of Fish and Game wanted to restore it as part of a multistate habitat conservation effort along the river. The slumping real estate market forced the developers to shelve their plans, and TPL was able to negotiate a purchase for half the original asking price.
