CONTRA COSTA COUNTY, CA (Feb. 20, 2022) — The recently announced Campaign to Save Harvey Ranch is one of the most ambitious undertakings in the 33-year history of the Martinez-based John Muir Land Trust (JMLT).
The group seeks to raise $4 million by the end of this year to acquire the 143-acre property, nestled above Saint Mary’s College Moraga campus, securing it in perpetuity as open space.
“Protecting the ranch will make accessible a heretofore difficult-to-reach trail system with exceptional views of the surrounding East Bay hills, Mount Diablo and the San Leandro Reservoir, as well as providing a critical buffer between essential wildlife habitat and encroaching residential development,” explained JMLT executive director Linus Eukel.
