Lone Pine Ranch preserved

November 30, 2021 — The Wildlands Conservancy, a conservation group that buys large tracts of land for preservation all over the state, announced earlier this month that it had succeeded in purchasing close to 27,000 acres along what it calls the Grand Canyon of the Eel River: the $25 million Lone Pine Ranch, which Dean Witter’s family bought in the1940s.

Lauren Schmitt, of our sister station KMUD, interviewed Frasier Haney, the Executive Director of The Wildlands Conservancy, about plans to protect the habita and open up the area to outdoor recreation in the next two years. We should note that the Witter family is a generous supporter of KZYX.
