Congratulations to the Kern River Valley Heritage Foundation, which raised funds from Audubon California (Jay J. and Sigrid E. Wimberly Wildlife Fund), the CA Natural Resources Agency, and the community to acquire the 189.26-acre Hot Springs Valley Wetlands Project property near Lake Isabella. The wetland will be a preserve for waterfowl and rare/endangered plants, and will include a visitors center, trails, and interpretive signage. The SNC provided an initial planning grant for this project in 2012.
