San Timoteo Canyon
San Timoteo Canyon is a rural area straddling northwest Riverside and southwest San Bernardino counties near the communities of Beaumont, Calimesa, Moreno Valley, and Redlands. In 2001, RLC began working towards a regional open space conservation program in the canyon and has since conserved and transferred over 1,100 acres to various conservation organizations. RLC currently holds 4 properties totaling about 485 acres. As part of RLC’s conservation efforts in the Canyon we collaborate with Inland Empire Resource Conservation District, State Parks, the Western Riverside County Regional Conservation Authority, and Redlands Conservancy. Open space in the canyon is being conserved primarily for habitat and passive recreation values.
