New Anza-Borrego Foundation Land Acquisitions

From the Anza-Borrego Foundation

Land Acquisition: Tax Defaults

Monitoring county tax default sales is an important means of land acquisition within Anza-Borrego Desert State Park. Every year, ABF purchases tax defaulted properties from the County of San Diego as well as Riverside and Imperial counties. This year was no different with five properties, totaling 35 acres, we purchased. Tax Default sales occur when property taxes have been unpaid for more than five years. This is often the result of an owner passing away and not having any heirs. Of the five parcels, one is in the hills less than a mile east of Collins Valley, one is just a few hundred yards from popular hiking trail “The Slot”, and another is in the beautiful Cactus Garden area off Kane Springs Rd. The two other parcels are located just north of Kane Springs Rd. With your support, we continue to acquire these properties to ensure the benefit and enjoyment of present and future generations.
