From Laura Garrett, conservation chair:
The 88-acre Mater Dolorosa Monastery is planning to sell 15-20 acres of its property to a developer who plans to build several houses there. This is potential Spotted Owl territory. CA Fish & Wildlife has already been apprised of the situation.

A coalition of Sierra Madre folks, including the Sierra Madre Mountain Conservancy, has begun the work of trying to stop this project. If you are interested in learning more, please visit www.stopmonasteryhousingproject.com.
