Alex Trebek Did Something Incredibly Thoughtful Before His Death

Alex Trebek Did Something Incredibly Thoughtful Before His Death

Alex Trebek‘s legacy lives on.

The Jeopardy host, who sadly died after a long battle with cancer at the age of 80 earlier in November, donated 62 acres of land in the Hollywood Hills to the city of Los Angeles years ago in 1998, People reported.

The Trebek Open Space runs into Runyon Canyon Park. It is described by the Mountains Recreation & Conservation authority as “a sunny, well-established network of fire roads, providing “trails for hikers, mountain bikers, and equestrians.”

The Laurel Canyon Land Trust reminded fans of the park with a tribute on Facebook following the sad news of his death.

“Today Alex Trebek passed away. Did you know that he was generous conservationist in addition to being a famous game show host? He donated 62 acres of land in the Santa Monica Mountains in Nichols Canyon to create the Trebek Open Space,” they wrote.

“This was not only a gift to urban Angelinos who thirst for open space and outdoor activity, but a gift to native animals such as our local Mountain Lions that require large amounts of open space in order to survive, and a gift to future generations who will have to reckon with climate change in the years to come. Thank you Alex Trebek and may you Rest in Peace.”

Ryan Reynolds recently recalled his last conversation with the late host.
