Protect Conejo Creek Wildlife Corridor

Protect Conejo Creek Wildlife Corridor

Help Save the Conejo Creek/101 Fwy Undercrossing for Our Ventura Wildlife.

Right now is the best chance we will ever have to protect our critical Conejo Creek wildlife corridor, but only if we act before June 30, 2015.

The following sample e-mail asks the Park Service to adopt Alternative D (See background information below).  You can simply copy it, or customize, and email it to: pwr_rimofthevalley@nps.gov  before June 30th.
To: The National Park Service
Re: The Rim of the Valley Corridor Study
I urge you to adopt Alternative D. It is the superior alternative in order to safeguard 313,000 acres of wildlife habitat, parks and recreation areas in an interconnecting “rim” of wildlife corridors and open space lands.This Alternative would include significant linkage on the western edge linking Pt. Mugu State Park and the Santa Monica Mountain National Park with the Santa Rosa Valley/Tierra Rejada/Simi Santa Susana open spaces.The Ventura County/Conejo Grade Corridor that connects the park land on the coast to inland open spaces is critically important. Two NPS radio monitored mountain lions recently crossed the 101 Freeway in this Conejo Grade area.  Now is the time to ensure our wildlife survives for the future.

Background:
The National Park Service was mandated by Congress to study the Rim of the Valley Corridor to determine whether any portion of the area is eligible to be designated as a national park or added to an existing national recreation area. The areas that are being studied are the San Fernando Valley, Conejo, Simi, La Crescenta, and Santa Clarita Valleys in Los Angeles and Ventura County.
The agency has been holding public hearings looking at four options. Their choice is Alternative C which would add about 173,000 acres to the existing Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area, but excludes Ventura County.
We are urging you to send an email to  pwr_rimofthevalley@nps.gov asking them to support Alternative D (see link below) instead. Alternative D is a much more effective alternative for protecting the wildlife corridor and open space lands in our area. This Alternative would include significant linkage on the western edge linking Pt. Mugu State Park/Santa Monica Mountains with the Santa Rosa Valley/Tierra Rejada/Simi Santa Susana open space. This is especially important since two National Park Service radio monitored mountain lions recently crossed the Conejo Grade area at the 101 Freeway. Mountain lion makes rare Highway 101 crossing on Conejo Grade – VC-Star
