Waldo Holt Conservancy at a glance
The Waldo Holt Conservancy was founded in 2007, following the
death of Waldo Holt, who championed open space for San Joaquin
County and preserving wildlife and habitat.
Holt died of cancer on July 11, 2007 at the age of 58. His
friends described him as a quiet, low-profile man who was actively
involved in developing San Joaquin County's multi-species habitat
conservation and open-space plan.
The group is run by a volunteer board of directors consisting of
Marj Fries, Marika Wolfe, Jane Humes, Eric Parfrey, Sara Russell,
Richard Schaffer and Steve Stocking.
Conservancy officials hope to obtain money to preserve land
through grants and individual and corporate donations. For more
information, call 463-0216 and leave a message, e-mail
firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.waldoconservancy.org.

San Joaquin County officials say the Woodbridge Wilderness Area
is an expensive albatross that will continue to cost the county
money and subject it to liability issues.
Meanwhile, in what could become a collision course, a nonprofit
organization devoted to preserving wildlife habitat hopes to
acquire nearly 5 acres adjacent to the wilderness area — and donate
it to the county.
