Pacific Shores Subdivision Acquisition – LEGACY has been working with Conservation Solutions since 2003 to provide an ongoing series of progress maps to track land acquisition within the 1000 acre Pacific Shores Subdivision in Del Norte County. This1960s era, poorly placed subdivision is in a wetland area of the Lake Earl estuary, the largest shallow water coastal lagoon in the Western US, outside of Alsaka. Through the work of Conservation Solutions and the Smith River Alliance, over 600 lots equaling more than 400 acres (0.625 sq mi) have been acquired by the State. The Pacific Shores area is slated to become a state park once 100% acquisition is achieved. At this point in time, about half of the subdivision lots have been acquired.
