DON’T FENCE ME IN: Nearly the size of Manhattan Island (or exactly equivalent to the square mileage of the City of Santa Barbara), the “Hanson Ranch” was pieced together slowly by Louise Hanson starting in 1972 and eventually grew to include eight previously individual properties that span much of the land between Highway 1 and Route 246 and Highway 101. All of that land (as shaded with green in the above map) is now protected thanks to Hanson’s recent deal with the California Rangeland Trust.
