Sinnamon Meadows Conservation Easement

Special Values: The property has been used as summer pasture since it was originally claimed under the Homestead Act by early prospectors - including the property's namesake, early Mono County pioneer James Sinnamon - in the late 1850's. Almost entirely surrounded by public lands, this unique property includes mountain meadows, aspen groves, coniferous forest, springs, and significant reaches of two creeks. Sinnamon Meadows’ high-elevation irrigated pastures serve as critical habitat for many notable wildlife species, most notably the Bi-State population of greater sage-grouse and the Sierra Nevada Bighorn sheep.
