update on future mega-park between Sacramento and North Bay area...

-

72 Acre Land purchase is in the works in Mountains between Sacramento and north Bay Area sprawl

Known as the Blueridge-Berryessa Natural Area--this 100 mile by 20 mile range of mountains, streams and lakes is a future mega-park that is currently a mix of public and private lands spanning from the Mendocino National Forest to the San Francisco Bay. Both the state and federal governments have purchased many thousands of acres of oak-covered woodlands and flowing creeks in the past ten years...

11/17/2009--Update: If you haven't yet heard, Tuleyome is buying 72 acres of the Cold Canyon headwaters. Information can be found at http://tuleyome.org . To date, we've raised about 20% of the purchase price, so thank you to all those who have contributed. Once we own it, it will be open to the public and we will work on trails. We anticipate within 5 years it will become part of the UC Reserve, though it will be open to the public right after we buy it.
