THE NATURAL HABITAT on the Sky Ranch, Dutra Ranch and Gustin properties consists of mixed oak woodland, annual and perennial native grasslands, live oak/bay laurel woodland and coastal scrub. This area embraces the upper reaches of Alhambra and Rodeo Creeks, supporting many reptiles and amphibians, such as the California red-legged frog and Alameda whipsnake, both threatened species. Many large and small mammals, songbirds and raptors thrive here, as well as other threatened, endangered and special status animal species, including the Golden eagle and Cooper’s hawk. These lands are traversed by the Bay Area Ridge Trail, adding protection to an important segment of its 500 miles. MUIR HERITAGE LAND TRUST is a community-based non-pro
