The mission of the Kelly Creek Protection Project (KCPP) is to support a community effort to protect the old Scott Ranch, a 58-acre parcel of land at the edge of Petaluma, California, from excessive suburban development. The property is a classic old ranch with threatened frog habitat, oak trees, and iconic red barns. The Project aims to expand the adjacent Helen Putnam Regional Park with a new trailhead for public access and preservation of the exquisite natural landscape, plants, and animals.
The KCPP advisory committee consists of Mara Guccione of the Earth Island Institute, Director Greg Colvin, and community member Peter Cohn.
Tamara S. Galanter of Shute, Mihaly & Weinberger LLP serves as legal counsel for the Kelly Creek Protection Project.
