The endorsement of both the US Fish & Wildlife and CA Fish and Game authorities underscores the desirability of this land for mitigation efforts. A comprehensive Protocol Survey has confirmed the presence of endangered species, including desert tortoise habitat, on the property. Additionally, the occasional sighting of wintering bighorn sheep on the foothills, along with other endangered and threatened plants and species, solidify its qualifications for land mitigation. Furthermore, for those willing to undertake the necessary paperwork, this property holds the potential to become a designated land mitigation bank. Once this process is completed, the buyer can capitalize on the sale of mitigation credits, which can fetch substantial prices, ranging from $15,000 to $40,000 per acre.

Tucked away in the heart of the designated "Desert Wildlife Management Area (DWMA)," this property boasts a remote location with only two neighbors—one, a third-generation cattle rancher, and the other, an inactive Feldspar mine. Furthermore, the County of San Bernardino has recently announced its acceptance of applications for legal industrial hemp cultivation within its borders. Embrace the potential for environmental stewardship and financial gain on this exceptional property, set in the midst of a dynamic and evolving landscape.
