Two proposals for protecting Rim of the Valley land

The National Park Service has proposed adding about 173,000 acres of wildlife habitat, parks and recreational areas (Alternative C) to the existing Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area. Other conservation advocates favor Alternative D, which would add about 313,000 acres to the national recreation area. Alternatives A and B are to do nothing or develop partnerships.
