Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy Moves to Acquire Phase 2 and 3 of Triangle Ranch
On Monday, July 23, the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy (SMMC) voted a grant from Proposition 68 funds to the Mountains Recreation and Conservation Authority (MRCA) to complete the acquisition of Phase 2 and 3 of the Triangle Ranch. Triangle Ranch is included in Significant Ecological Area (SEA) #6; the 110 acres for these phases in entirely within the SEA. Preservation of Triangle Ranch Phases 2 and 3 will provide a broad habitat connection between the Liberty Canyon wildlife corridor, the proposed 101 wildlife bridge, and the Ladyface Mountain core habitat area. Over 1,300 feet of streambed will be protected, and may offer additional restoration enhancement opportunities.
Phase 1 of Triangle Ranch has already been acquired and Phase 4, which is west of Kanan Road, is the last part of the property that is targeted by the SMMC.
