Sonoma County peak protected under $2.3M deal

SANTA ROSA, Calif. (AP) -- Pole Mountain, Sonoma County's highest peak, will be protected and preserved for public use as part of a $2.3 million sale to the Sonoma Land Trust.

The Santa Rosa Press Democrat reports (http://bit.ly/1qf5KU6 ) private owners sold a 238-acre coastal parcel, which includes the 2,200-foot peak, on Monday.

The deal also allows the land trust to connect Pole Mountain to two adjacent preserves, Jenner Headlands and Little Black Mountain. The newspaper says that will create more than 6,300 contiguous acres of open space featuring rolling grasslands and ocean views.

Pole Mountain is the latest acquisition by the trust, which since 1976 has worked with other agencies and nonprofits to preserve nearly 48,000 acres of land.
