History of Traylor Ranch Nature Reserve


On February 10, 1998 the Board of Supervisors approved the Traylor Ranch Nature Reserve. 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 was mounted on a granite slab at the Grinding Rock Area in 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.
