VISTA — The Vista Conservancy, a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit organization, has accepted a tax-deductible donation of close to an acre of land. The property borders Buena Vista Creek, and is located on Vale Terrace Drive in Vista. This gift is an ideal addition for the Vista Conservancy as it lies directly across the creek from the conservancy’s trail extension.
Covered with underbrush and poison oak, the conservancy, with permission from the California Department of Fish and Game, hired contractors to clear the land and raise the canopy. The meandering creek and majestic old trees highlight enjoyment from the property. This generous donation of land will help as the Vista Conservancy pursues the protection of historical, agricultural and environmentally sensitive open space within the Vista area.
Once The Vista Conservancy’s current walking trail is extended and combined with the Vale Terrace property, hikers will be able to cross the street and head through Brengle Terrace Park right up to the Alta Vista Gardens Botanical Garden. The extension wanders through an oak and sycamore shaded section of the picturesque creek. With assurances from the city, this fully funded project will be completed this year.
The Vista Conservancy was formed to acquire, protect and manage the natural resources in a manner beneficial for current and future community inhabitants. The ultimate goal is “Keeping Vista … Vistarrific!” Call (760) 724-1874 or e-mail [email protected] for more information.
