Parks, MALT, and Private Donor Partner to Preserve Open Space in Lucas Valley

POSTED: NOVEMBER 8, 2017

The Marin County Open Space District is working with the Marin Agricultural Land Trust (MALT) and Luiz Ranch, Inc. to create a 1,000-acre agricultural conservation easement that will preserve the agricultural and open space character of Marin. The Open Space District owns two adjacent easements over private property registered with Luiz Ranch, Inc. In late 2016, Luiz Ranch, Inc. approached the Open Space District and the Marin Agricultural Land Trust (MALT) with a proposal to donate 240 additional acres and connect it to the two existing easements. The proposal goes before the Marin County Open Space District Board of Directors on November 14. For more information read the County of Marin press release.
