Yesterday was an important day for conservation. Prop 68 was approved by voters with 56% of the vote. You may recall it is the first Park Bond Act in 15 years!
This bond measure focuses on many things including fighting climate change, providing better access to parks and open space–especially for disadvantaged communities, and addresses the threats our state faces from drought, wildfire, and flood. Voters sent a clear message that they support investing in our natural resources.
What does this mean for the Puente-Chino Hills Wildlife Corridor? It means critical acquisitions–some 30+ years in the making–will be eligible for conservation dollars. Stay tuned as we continue our work to protect, connect, and restore lands across the Wildlife Corridor.
Thank you for being engaged and supporting this important work!
