Announcing the Campaign to Expand Franklin Ridge

A Must for Conservation

Preserving intact natural corridors is essential if wild species are to adapt to climate change. The goal of the latest John Muir Land Trust campaign is to do precisely that—prevent incursions into a pristine open space that nurtures the welfare of native wildlife.

Humans will benefit, too.

This ridgeline features miles of trails and panoramic views. It’s a delight for nature enthusiasts across the East Bay. For three decades, with the help of generous donors like you, John Muir Land Trust (JMLT) has been adding key parcels to the 10,000-acre Franklin Ridge Wildlife and Trail Corridor southwest of downtown Martinez in northern Contra Costa County.
