WHEN: Thursday, July 28, 2016 from 9 AM - 12 PM

In June, the Mountain Lion Foundation and 34 other leading wildlife organizations and individuals submitted a group letter
outlining problems with the Altair Development's Draft Environmental Impact Report.
The Altair development plans to build housing on 270-acres in Temecula, along I-15. These homes would block a vital wildlife corridor and essentially cut off the last lifeline for mountain lions in the Santa Ana Mountains of Orange County. Lions in this region already have one of the lowest survival rates and lowest genetic diversity recorded in any North American population of mountain lions. The Santa Margarita Ecological Reserve and its river are essential to wildlife in the region and should be protected permanently.
If you live in Southern California, please attend the workshop to voice your concerns for preserving wildlife corridors and ecological health in the Santa Ana Mountains.
