Rincon Band donates land to protect arroyo toad

The Rincon Band of Mission Indians has donated 83 acres to San Diego County to help protect the arroyo toad, an endangered species.

The tribe bought two parcels of land for a total of $1.5 million. The purchase was meant to offset environmental impacts of the tribe's casino.

The county will use some of the land for a park and the other to widen a road.
