Important Park Land Acquisition
posted: February 04, 2005
FOP has learned that a deal has been struck securing the land currently held by the Pinnacles Ranch for the Park. With the help of the Nature Conservancy (who helped to purchase the land) and an appropriation granted by Congress this year the land has been put into trust for the Park.
There is a good article in the SJ Mercury that you can find in their archives section. Search for "Pinnacles National Monument."
For those of you who do not know, The Park has been trying to acquire this land for ever, so this is huge. This land leads right up to the front of the park (see map) and includes (we believe) the privately held Pinnacles Campground.
Details should come from the Park itself soon.
Congratulation to Pinnaces National Monument regarding this great news.
