Jenner Headlands Finalized to Open Space in Sonoma County

Wonderful news and long sought.

Thanks to our own Supervisor Reilly, the Land Trust and so many others we
have a treasure preserved for all time.

Now we have to go to work on protecting the rest, and connecting the
headlands east.

Congratulations to all of you who have worked so long and hard to make this
happen. Be sure to spread the good news.

Have a wonderful autumn week,
Rue

I am pleased to share this news with each of you — after more than four
years of negotiations, the agreement to purchase Jenner Headlands has
finally been completed, and was announced today during a media event at the
site.

We expect to see news coverage of the announcement on Channel 7 [KGO-TV]
during the 6 p.m. newscast tonight, and on the front page of the Friday
Press Democrat. The attached news release also has been distributed to other
media.

Supervisor Mike Reilly set the tone for the day when he told the reporters
that this agreement is perhaps “the most significant purchase in the history
of Sonoma County.” Certainly you will agree that today’s event is a
significant milestone in the District’s history.

Thank you, all, for your continued support of the District.

Sincerely,

Andrea
