Girl Scouts reach deal to save two Bay Area camps

SANTA CLARA COUNTY, Calif.

Every year almost 10,000 Girl Scouts attend either Skylark Ranch in Santa Clara County or Butano Creek in San Mateo County. But the scouts have been struggling with the high cost of maintaining their camps.

So the Semper-Virens Fund has agreed to pay Girl Scouts almost $3 million for a conservation easement. It's a win-win that means the scouts can continue their camps, but never sell the land for development.
