Open Space & Wildlife
We are fortunate to be surrounded by so much natural beauty within California’s south central coast. The coastal bluffs, fertile agricultural lands, and unsurpassed creeks and rivers are what draw so many people to live, work, and play in this region. But this is also why our communities need EDC to represent the public interests and stand up against the immense development pressures that threaten our communities and healthy environment. EDC has helped preserve more than 100,000 acres, including Ellwood Mesa, Douglas Family Preserve, Carpinteria Bluffs, Sedgwick Ranch, Fiscalini Ranch, Hearst Ranch, Ahmanson Ranch, Oxnard Shores, Burton Mesa Chaparral, and more.
