The Sierra Nevada Conservancy would provide funding for the Bear Yuba Land Trust (BYLT) to purchase fee title to the Wildflower Ridge Preserve, a 128-acre property adjacent to the northwest side of Grass Valley. The property holds many conservation values, including unique native plants on lava cap soils, heritage black oak groves and a productive conifer forest, existing trail easements with public access, and Nisenan cultural heritage sites. The current land use is undeveloped open space with actively used public trail easements. The intent of the acquisition is to protect the open space, habitat, cultural resources, and public recreation aspects of the property from potential future development. In addition, the BYLT would like to explore opportunities for public education on the property and donate a conservation easement to the Nevada City Nisenan Rancheria Tribe, but a management plan is not yet developed. Along with the fee title transfer, the project includes preparation of a Baseline Conditions Report, creating a land management plan, funding two community outreach meetings, and providing for tribal participation.
