Banning Ranch Is A Local Biodiversity Hot Spot In Orange County

Perhaps you’ve heard that Banning Ranch has been a fenced-off oil field for decades. Maybe you’ve heard of plans to replace it with multi-unit homes, a sprawling resort hotel complex and acres of high-end commercial space.

Banning Ranch is the last remaining unprotected coastal open space South of Ventura County.

The reality of Banning Ranch is a deeply natural habitat for thousands of species. The lush green grasslands, natural bluffs, deep arroyos and vernal pools do not deserve to be displaced or killed by years of construction and destruction.
