Come paddle the reservoir in search of unique species like Sandhill Cranes, Bald Eagles, and Willow Flycatchers, and explore the grasslands and riparian corridor of the land on foot. Learn about the success of FRLT's collaboration with PG&E to conserve this beautiful property, the diverse habitat that makes it special, and the 8-acre "Mountain Meadows Gateway" property, purchased by FRLT in 2018, which connects the vast 7,058 acres of Mountain Meadows reservoir and surrounding lands directly to the town of Westwood.

We love our four-legged friends, but please do not bring dogs to this event.
