Quote from the SF Chronicle article (which also includes a great set of pictures):
The executive director of the Truckee Donner Land Trust told his son how he had been working for some eight years trying to save the biologically rich area from developers who wanted to build a hotel, golf course and some 600 units of housing right where they were standing. His son looked around and said, "Dad, grown-ups shouldn't build houses in places like this." And now they won't.Right on, brother. I'm sure a lot of people were behind this happening, much of the same people targeting the next section of wilderness near Northstar to be preserved. It continues to amaze me how these trusts are so effective. My thanks to their tireless effort!
Now, did anyone see a trailhead on this property? I sense the inaugural Waddle Ranch 50k may already be in the works!
