Puente Hills Landfill Native Habitat Preserve is a group of  parks & trails under the jurisdiction of the The Puente Hills Landfill Native Habitat Preservation Authority. The Habitat Authority’s jurisdiction extends within eastern Los Angeles County approximately from the intersection of the 605 and 60 Freeways in the west to Harbor Boulevard in the east.
To date, the Habitat Authority manages approximately 3,860 acres of preserved public open space, of which 1,878 is owned by the Habitat Authority. The remaining lands are either owned by the City of Whittier or the Sanitation Districts of Los Angeles County. Ultimately it is hoped that over 4,000 acres will be preserved. The Habitat Authority’s main focus since inception has been acquisition of the remaining open space within its jurisdiction with special consideration given to the Hacienda Heights area. The thinking is that we need to acquire what is left before it is not available any more. We also engage in many other very important activities such as Park Management and Natural Resource Management, and provide many other valuable services such as Outreach and Trail Access.
