IRVINE, Calif. (AP) — A real estate firm is offering 2,500 acres of undeveloped property to Orange County to become protected wild land.

The Orange County Register reports the Irvine Co. wants to hand over two parcels — one in Anaheim Hills and the other near East Orange — that at one time had been slated for development.

Documents with the proposal will be given to the Board of Supervisors on Tuesday.

It could take months for the supervisors to reach a decision on whether to accept the nearly four square miles of land, which could come with maintenance costs.

Chairman Donald Bren says the company decided to donate the land to celebrate its 150th anniversary.

It could add a large swath of preserved space on the northern end of the Irvine Ranch.
