Over 1,700 acres of West Marin land will be protected from development and preserved for agriculture due to two easements soon to be completed by the Marin Agricultural Land Trust.

This month, Marin County supervisors approved a grant of over $1.8 million to help Marin Agricultural Land Trust (MALT) purchase an agricultural easement on the 1,179-acre Spring Valley Ranch and a grant of over $1.5 million to purchase an agricultural easement on the 592-acre Bivista Ridge Ranch.
