Rancho Cañada del Oro Open Space Preserve will be closed as of 4 p.m. on Monday, September, 26, 2016 for fire crew staging during the Loma Fire. More updates will be provided as we receive them.
The Open Space Authority is assisting fire crews for the Loma Fire by allowing Authority lands to be used for staging of emergency response services and by providing important information regarding roads and terrain.
The Santa Clara Valley Open Space Authority is applying for accreditation by the Land Trust Accreditation Commission. The process culminates in the awarding of an accreditation seal as a mark of distinction in land conservation.
Open Space Authority stakeholders may submit comments by visiting www.landtrustaccreditation.org, or emailing to firstname.lastname@example.org. The public comment period is open now and continues until November 11, 2016. Read more.
