McCormick Ranch 2023
Saving McCormick Ranch – We did it!!
We are thrilled to announce that the last of the remaining undeveloped parcels of what was the historic McCormick Ranch property has been acquired, and will be protected forever. It will be added to Hood Mountain Regional Park and Open Space Preserve and the Napa County portion will be owned by Napa County Regional Park and Open Space District, after transfer from the Napa Land Trust. Announcements with the good news are below:
Through the collaboration of three agencies – Sonoma County Ag + Open Space, Sonoma Land Trust, and Regional Parks – the 654 acres will be added to Hood Mountain Regional Park and Open Space Preserve contributing to the region’s incredible places to explore while also preserving irreplaceable natural resources.
Thanking our Funders: There are six main funders and several individuals who collectively contributed $14.3M to purchase the McCormick property. Funders include The Gordon & Betty Moore Foundation; California State Coastal Conservancy; California Natural Resources Agency; Sonoma County Ag + Open Space, and California State Parks’ Habitat Conservation Fund, and Sonoma Land Trust, thanks to several individuals including Jake Warner and Toni Ihara and a substantial gift from Jeff and Laurie Ubben that put the project over the finish line.
In addition, a generous contribution of $3.425 million by the landowner Jim Perry and his sons.
Meeting our 30×30 goals requires bold commitments and swift action and conserving the McCormick Ranch was a key step to achieving this goal.
