Bolsa Chica Land Trust
The Bolsa Chica Land Trust was formed in 1992 by a small group of Californians who believed that one of the last standing wetland ecosystems in Southern California was worth preserving for future generations. The Land Trust now includes more than 5000 members from throughout California and twenty other states.

A historic agreement to preserve, protect ALL of Bolsa Chica
Update: We are a little more than half-way there on our fundraising goal! Spread the word today and help us reach our goal of $1M for the acquisition and restoration of the Ridge and Goodell properties.
The BCLT is uniting with the national nonprofit Trust for Public Land and developer Signal Landmark to work toward full preservation of the remaining land of the Ridge and Goodell properties.
This is a historic agreement earned after a decades-long, hard-fought effort to preserve this important environmental, cultural and archeological resource, however there is much work to be done.
In order for us to fully protect the remaining acreage of the Bolsa Chica Mesa, we need to raise funds to purchase the site outright.
While Signal Landmark emphatically supports and will assist in the acquisition of this site, if funding for purchase of the properties cannot be secured, Signal Landmark will have the right to develop 2.5 acres (half of the Ridge property) for homes. The remaining half of the Ridge property and all of the Goodell property will be donated to either BCLT, an accredited Land Trust or an appropriate state agency, with the same goals as set above: the protection and conservation of the land’s cultural, archaeological and biological resources as passive open space.
We have launched a fundraising campaign to secure the funds that will help us acquire, restore and preserve this final piece of the Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve.
