History and Background
The 510-acres West Coyote Hills is North Orange County’s last remaining natural open space. It is located in the northwest corner of the City of Fullerton close to its borders with the cities of La Habra, La Mirada, and Buena Park.
The property is currently owned by Chevron-Pacific Coast Homes who has plans to develop 760 homes and a commercial area on the site. The Sierra Club Coyote Hills Taskforce and the Friends of Coyote Hills are working to preserve all 510 acres of West Coyote Hills as a park and preserve for now and the future. We believe that West Coyote Hills must be preserved for its ecological, recreational, and educational values.
West Coyote Hills has been used as an oil field since the late 19th century. As oil production dwindled in the 1970s, Chevron-Pacific Coast Homes began to steadily develop this site with homes. The last remaining 510 acres of the West Coyote Hills is currently zoned as oil and gas.
