Streisand donates land

Barbra Streisand donated her multimillion-dollar 24-acre estate for an environmental research center and retreat, a gift called “the most valuable land ever donated.”

The Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy announced Wednesday the estimated $ 15 million Ramirez Canyon estate, including four homes and a caretaker’s cottage, will become the Streisand Center for Conservancy Studies.
