A Trend Toward Sustainability
Preservation Ranch is a bold vision to consolidate, restore and conserve nearly 20,000 acres of forests, grasslands and watershed in Northwest Sonoma County. Together, the following four goals will help reverse decades of misuse.
17,000 + acres
Sustainably managed forest
Preservation Ranch will create conservation easements on 17,000+ acres and plant over a million Redwood and Douglas fir seedings, ensuring sustainable timber practices from this point forward.
2,700 + acres
Windy Gap preserve
To provide permanent protections for the Gualala River watershed, we will create the Windy Gap Preserve, a 2,700-acre wildlife and habitat preserve of oak woodland, mixed oak and conifer forest.
1000 + acres
Sustainably farmed vineyards
Vineyards will be planted in small blocks, allowing us to avoid sensitive areas and minimize environmental impacts. Revenue generated will be channeled into ongoing restoration efforts.
200 + acres
Soda Springs Reserve
Preservation Ranch proposes to donate 221 acres to the County of Sonoma to expand the Soda Springs Reserve, including an easement for the creation of a 5-mile loop trail.
