The Campaign for Diablo’s Wild Lands
Save Mount Diablo launched Phase I of Forever Wild in 2012 with a campaign target of $15 million.
By the end of 2012, our generous donors had contributed $6.6 million.
We are incredibly grateful to the supporters who have helped to launch this campaign.
With that sum, we were able to acquire the extraordinary 1,080-acre Curry Canyon Ranch. This spectacular property, with its commanding views and critical wildlife corridors, had topped Save Mount Diablo’s acquisition priority list since its founding in 1971. Now, thanks to Forever Wild supporters and generous grants from the Coastal Conservancy and the Gordon & Betty Moore Foundation, one of the most important and spectacular properties remaining in Contra Costa County has been protected forever.
