We invite you to experience a truly unique preview reception featuring musical duo, Willa Mamet and Paul Miller in the first benefit concert for preserving open space in the surrounding connectivity of Hellhole Canyon. Enjoy over thirty original works of art and historic reproductions that showcase the past and present day Guejito Ranch open space.

‘Beauty is in the eye of the beholder…’and without a doubt those who are privileged to view the notable 1845, 22,000+ acre Guejito Ranch, which is the last remaining Mexican land grant, the only one that is intact and under sole ownership, hands-down agree this is a jewel of the west, a priceless treasure, Xanadu, Shangri-La and describe their experience as an emotional encounter the likes of which they have no comparison.

Friends of Hellhole Canyon have 400 acres within reach as a ‘gateway corridor,’ to the Guejito that will aid in ensuring wildlife will be sustained and we need your help. Part of our mission is to provide Paradise Mountain passports to our pumas so they don't become isolated like their Hollywood confined cousin. http://www.latimes.com/projects/la-me-griffith-park-mountain-lion/?scrlybrkr=95e91f9e#

Learn more about North County’s jewel and the importance it has in safeguarding threatened species at our concert and art exhibit.
