Document Description
The Muir Heritage Land Trust proposes to integrate its 483-acre Franklin Canyon property with its adjacent 702-acre Fernandez Ranch property. The project purpose is to open the site for public use and enjoyment by providing multi-use trails, and to re-introduce grazing to the Franklin Canyon site to improve rangeland health and overall site habitat quality. The trails component includes creating a series of trails which extend established Fernandez Ranch trails onto the Franklin Canyon parcel, trail on Franklin Canyon, and add one new Fernandez Ranch trail. The grazing component includes preparing Franklin Canyon for grazing by repairing or replacing existing fencing, installing new fencing, and creating watering facilities for livestock.
