Joel McCrea Wildlife Preserve

The centerpiece of this 148-acre open space area is the 75-acre McCrea Wildlife Refuge, which was a gift to the Conejo Open Space Conservation Agency from the actor Joel McCrea and his family in 1981. The refuge includes rocky outcrops that are favorite roosting and nesting sites for birds of prey, as well as a deep canyon that provides a year-round water source for local wildlife and riparian vegetation. The area also supports several species of rare and endangered plants and the locally unique Conejo rock plant association. Under terms of an agreement with the McCrea family, public access to this preserve is limited to protect sensitive resources.
