Eagle Peak Ranch - Last Payment Due Jan 15, 2020
Will You Join With Us to Protect This Valley?

The South Rim Conservation Area from Jim Karnik Films on Vimeo.

Eagle Peak Ranch is a wonderful valley which includes Temescal Creek. Over several acquisitions the Ranch has grown to 454 acres. Different sections of the Ranch are known as Homestead, Gateway, Overlook and the Creek.

When we first learned that the Ranch was available for purchase, it was being marketed as a potential site for several estate homes. We knew of the Ranch's incredible beauty as one of the few remaining largely intact valleys in the region. We also knew of the property's immense wildlife value. So we had to act fast. With lots of support, funds were raised to put a deposit down to put the property in escrow. We secured a loan of $807,000 from the Conservation Fund, a national nonprofit organization. An amazing community of people came together to raise the remaining funds neeed to complete the purchase. Over time we made a significant payment and continued to raise funds toward the loan. Now, we have just over $100,000 left to raise before Jan. 15, 2020. We invite you to join us as we race against the clock to preserve this incredible property.


$126,087 is a great deal of money to raise. But with your support we can do it. A gift as little as $10 or $20 when combined with 100s of other gifts of all different amounts will get us there, but we need you.


Please consider donating what you can today!

The property was acquired to conserve the valley and protect the Creek. The property contains the source of Temescal Creek which flows to the Upper San Diego River Gorge. The Ranch offers tremendous potential for recreation, education and research. If you are interested in learning more about these opportunities, please let us know!
