Crocker Lake Open Space

A long-range plan for enhancement of lake habitat, fire prevention, ecological restoration, trails, and emergency access for a 60-acre scenic wooded canyon surrounded by ridge-top houses. Formerly part of an historic private estate but now public property, the ecologically rich open space includes a small lake, a perennial stream, wetlands, and oak woodlands. The plan also addressed costs, implementation priorities, and phasing.
