John Muir Land Trust asks Animal Life readers for help

DEAR JOAN: I’m writing to ask your help.

We’re hoping you and your readers will help John Muir Land Trust (jmlt.org) raise $100,000 by the end of this year toward the acquisition of Almond Ranch. Two years ago, your readers generously helped us reach the $7 million needed to purchase Carr Ranch, a stunning 604-acre addition to the Upper San Leandro Watershed that helps keep intact 15,500 acres of essential wilderness habitat.
