 PARTNERSHIP TO BE FORMALIZED BETWEEN ARCO AND
 CALIFORNIA STATE DEPARTMENT OF FISH AND GAME, OCT. 7
 Private industry, government and environmental groups across the country will be taking a hard look at a unique public-private partnership allowing ARCO to manage more than 6,000 acres of sensitive land, encompassing endangered species habitat, it has deeded to the state of California as an ecosystem preserve.
 The land, near Bakersfield, will be set aside as a conservation easement to protect the rare and endangered animal and plant life found there including, among others, the Kit Fox and Kangaroo Rat. The newly created preserve is part of Southern San Joaquin Valley habitat where more endangered species are found than any other area in the "lower 48" states.
 California Gov. Pete Wilson and ARCO chairman and chief executive officer Lodwrick Cook will help formalize the partnership between ARCO and the California State Department of Fish and Game in a special dedication on the ecosystem site 20 miles southwest of Bakersfield, Wednesday, Oct. 7, beginning at 11 a.m.
 A press briefing and 15-minute nature-trail walking tour, highlighting a number of endangered species habitat, with Wilson and Cook, will follow the dedication which begins at 12:15 p.m. In addition to comments by Wilson and Cook, the ceremony will include document signings and comments by Congressman Calvin Dooley on reauthorization of the federal Endangered Species Act.
 A question and answer session and an opportunity for individual interviews will follow the press briefing. The dedication ceremony, walking tour and Q&A will take place from approximately 12:15 p.m. to 1:10 p.m. Prior to the ceremony, lunch will be provided for all interested media.
