Just like we’ve done one acre at a time with Chino Hills State Park, the Mojave Desert Land Trust is doing the same thing in the desert. We’d like to give a shout out to our long-time friend, Geary Hund, for his work through California State Parks protecting Coal Canyon Wildlife Corridor in the late 1990s/early 2000s. Coal Canyon is the key linkage between the Santa Ana Mountains and Chino Hills State Park.
Geary is featured in the article, which focuses on a federal funding source, called the Land and Water Conservation Fund, which many parks and non-profits rely on for important conservation acquisitions, among other critical projects. We were glad to see Geary’s work highlighted and hope the House of Representatives passes the bill (the Great American Outdoors Act) very soon!
