BIG TUJUNGA BOUNDARY SURVEY
 
During the next few weeks, survey crews will be conducting work in and around Big T. Ground monuments are being installed onsite to identify the site boundaries. You may have already seen the orange marker posts indicating their work. Please do not damage or remove any of the survey equipment. Posts that are located on the trails are temporary and will be removed shortly.
 
If you have any questions regarding the boundary survey, please contact the Los Angeles County Department of Public Works at BTWMA@dpw.lacounty.gov
 
PROJECT SUMMARY
 
The Big Tujunga Wash Mitigation Area was purchased by the Los Angeles County Flood Control District in 1998 for the purpose of compensating for habitat loss from other projects. The site encompasses approximately 210 acres of land located in the City of Los Angeles Sunland area. Several equestrian and hiking trails wind throughout the native alluvial scrub, aquatic, and willow riparian habitat that surround the Big Tujunga Wash. These plant communities provide suitable habitat for many wildlife species. The Big Tujunga Wash site also provides or has the potential to provide suitable habitat for a number of endangered, threatened, and sensitive plant and wildlife species including Davidson's bushmallow, Plummer's mariposa lily, slender-horned spineflower, San Diego horned lizard, black-crowned night heron, great blue heron, Cooper's hawk, loggerhead shrike, southwestern willow flycatcher, least Bell's vireo, and Santa Ana Sucker.
