Join Fiscalini Ranch Preserve in its annual restoration Thanksgiving Weekend Tree Planting. Visitors and local volunteers help plant, mulch and water hundreds of rare and endangered Monterey pine trees to help replenish the native forest at the Preserve. So far over 1000 trees have been planted with a good survival rate. The trees are grown from disease-resistant seeds collected from nearby trees and grown by volunteers for this purpose.
Acquiring property for public access and open space is only the beginning of the process to save land for future generations. Some lands are closed to the public to preserve them. It is the belief of Friends of Fiscalini Ranch Preserve, that by remaining open to the public, the Preserve can serve as the much-needed connection to we all crave. But keeping it open and in a natural state means taking care of the land and its few improvements. No funds were given with the purchase of the Preserve for this, so this work needs to be done by volunteers. It is rewarding to see what a difference one to three hours of work can make!
