One of the last major undeveloped canyons in Malibu is slated to remain open space. On June 2, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors approved a $6 million allocation to help purchase filmmaker and Malibu resident James Cameron’s 703-acre property in Puerco Canyon. An additional $4.5 million will come from the Wildlife Conservation Board, and $1.5 million from the California State Coastal Conservancy, for a total purchase price of $12 million.

Cameron began buying land in the canyon in 1999, amassing a total of 729 acres on 24 parcels.
