Document Description
Grant of Proposition 204 funds to The Nature Conservatory for acquisition of conservation easements on two critical riparian properties: the Miller Ranch (@1600 acres) on the main stem of Battle Creek above Coleman Fish Hatchery; and the Winning Ranch (@700 acres) on the South Fork of Battle Creek contiguous to several Bureau of Land Management properties. Both properties are working cattle ranches. Neither property has soils rated as prime, statewide important, or uniwue. The project includes stewardship and monitoring tasks on both properties, plus a third property located on the north fork of Battle Creek that is already under a conservation easement held by The Nature Conservancy. Stewardship will include fencing of sensitive riparian areas on the Miller Ranch. Monitoring includes preparation of baseline conditions reports, bird monitoring and easement monitoring.
