* Win Fish Ranch / Palo Corona Ranch -

The spectacular 10,000 acre Fish Ranch / Palo Corona Ranch was purchased for $37 million so it can be a Regional or State Park. The breathtaking land is the huge ridgetop on your left as you leave to drive down to Big Sur. It goes uphill back from Highway 1 following the coast all the way South to Garapatta canyon - just behind the Soberanes trail. It includes several year round streams with Endangered Species Act listed steelhead and California red-legged frogs.

Please Thank Assemblyman Fred Keeley for putting the two successful Billion bond bills on our ballot. And thank your Regional Park District Directors and General Manage Joe Donofrio for putting in 5 million dollars.


* Hatton Canyon is a Park. After a 50 year battle the Carmel Freeway is finally dead.
