Donner Summit Land To Be Saved As Open Space

The Sacramento Bee reported that 3,000 acres of granite peaks and wildflower-dotted meadows at the top of Donner Summit will be preserved as open space. A proposed 950 home development has gone into foreclosure which allowed three non-profit groups to buy the land,  the 3,000-acre Royal Gorge property. Plans include building trails, removing fences, and the opening the site for public use.

The three groups, The Trust for Public Land, Truckee Donner Land Trust and the Northern Sierra Partnership, need to raise $13.5 million  to complete the purchase.  Read more at: Donner Summit land to be preserved as open space – Outbound – The Sacramento Bee.
