Located between the Los Angeles Basin and the booming communities of the
San Fernando Valley, California's Santa Monica Mountains offer
essential recreation in one of the nation's most densely populated
regions. In November 2008, TPL helped protect from development the nearly 650-acre Rancho Corral, one of the last undeveloped coastal canyons in Los Angeles County. The addition to Malibu Creek State Park offers hiking and other recreation and makes possible a critical connection for a coastal slope trail.
