TRNR History

On February 10, 1998 the Board of Supervisors approved the Traylor Ranch Nature Reserve. Thank you to the LBHA members that worked with the Traylors and the County to make this happen. Hurrah! The same afternoon, Supervisor Robert Weygandt and Placer County Parks Department representatives presented a granite plaque to the Traylor’s in recognition of their donation. This plaque will be mounted on a granite slap at the entrance to the Reserve. We are very grateful to the Traylor's for this generous donation of almost 90 acres. They also donated $1,000.00 to the Traylor Ranch Nature Reserve Fund to help with the project. 




Traylor Ranch workdays have ended for the season. They are due to startup again come March. The trails are in pretty good shape. However, there is an oak down near the Grinding Rock entrance, so be aware.


I would like to thank everyone who has come out and helped this year. Have you checked out our Traylor Ranch Facebook page? I post updates there and you are welcome to post comments as well. If you have a ride or walk at TRNR, take a photo and post it. TraylorRanchNatureReserveandBirdSanctuary/ If you have any questions, don't hesitate reaching out to me.
