Headwaters Corner is home to diverse ecosystems and wildlife habitats, including riparian (or streamside), coast live oak/walnut woodland, coastal sage scrub, grassland and fresh water wetland. It is also of cultural significance, as the original homestead house built at the turn of the century still stands on its grounds. The challenge faced by the partners and participants includes restoration of the perennial stream to its original meander, removal of non-native invasive plants and the planting of native flora to return native fauna to its natural habitat, as well as restoration of the historic home.
The Headwaters Corner Board of Directors includes two representatives from the Mountains Restoration Trust, a nonprofit land trust who acquired and manages the site and two representatives from the City of
Calabasas , who assisted in the acquisition and now owns the land, and a fifth Director who is the Superintendent of the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area. The Board of Directors has primary oversight of the design and implementation of the ongoing plans for the
Center . There are numerous organizations and individuals that are currently adding their expertise to the project, including historical and archeological research and natural resources best management practices recommendations.
