Centennial Ranch Conservation Easement

Special Values: This 718 acre conservation easement provides multiple benefits to the local economy by ensuring continued agricultural operations and maintaining the natural balance of ranchland. This important easement extends conserved private agricultural lands all the way to the northern end of the valley and borders the larger Centennial Ranch holdings, 6,390 acres of which are already under conservation easement.

The property was one of the earliest ranches in the valley and has been utilized for livestock production for 150 years. Under previous ownership, the property was also used for raising horses, sheep, and lamb, however in the years since that time the operation has shifted to cattle.

Visitors travelling Highway 395 can enjoy the outstanding vistas of the Sierra Nevada mountains, and the open ranchland of the valley below.
