This prominent landmark bluff has long been known as a beautiful and natural entry and viewpoint for visitors entering Encinitas. The bluff is now at imminent risk for development - past and current efforts have proposed plans which would alter and impact the natural beauty and landscape of this invaluable property, be detrimental to adjacent already preserved habitat, create possible public safety and other issues, and the result could be a truly tremendous loss to our community, to our county, and to our State of California.
The bluff is an irreplaceable remnant of native California, harboring plants, protected bird species including the gnatcatcher and small animals that are all too swiftly disappearing from California's southern coast - so many are threatened and are endangered . The preservation of the bluff is of great importance to the Batiquitos Lagoon Ecological Reserve, provides wildlife connectivity, protects the open spaces of Encinitas, and has irreplaceable environmental value.
