The Anza-Borrego Foundation (ABF), announced Wednesday, Dec. 2, the final elements in the conservation of the Lucky 5 Ranch in the Laguna Mountains, northeast of San Diego. The acreage will eventually become part of Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, creating a major parcel of exceptional natural beauty and biological importance.

ABF purchased just under 1,130 acres and obtained a conservation easement on 433 acres to fulfil decades-long efforts by California State Parks, ABF, The Nature Conservancy, and others to connect the 4,245-acre ranch to adjacent pieces of federal and state conservation land.

ABF’s actions are the final piece in the creation of a wildlife corridor—a continuous connection of publicly protected lands—from the desert floor to the Laguna Mountains.
