It’s official: the Mountains Recreation and Conservation Authority has closed escrow on 703 acres in Puerco Canyon, the largest remaining privately owned open space in Los Angeles County. 

The property, comprised of 24 parcels, was sold to the Conservancy by filmmaker James Cameron for $12 million, and will be named the Cameron Nature Preserve, a press release from the MRCA states.
