Tejon Ranch and Environmental Groups Reach Land Deal

After years of legal tussles, environmental groups have agreed not to challenge proposed development on the sprawling Tejon Ranch north of Los Angeles in exchange for close to 240,000 acres. The deal that would set aside the largest parcel of land for conservation in California history. At 375 square miles, the preserve of desert, woodlands and grasslands would be eight times the size of San Francisco and nearly the size of Los Angeles, Tejon Ranch sits atop the Tehachapi Mountains 60 miles north of Los Angeles and is home to elk, wild turkeys, coyotes, bears and eagles, as well as a critical habitat for condors. Larry talks with Bill Corcoran of the Sierra Club and Eileen Anderson of the Center for Biological Diversity about the news.
