TRAYLOR RANCH LATEST INFO
By Dave Faoro

Our first workday of 2014 is on March 22. As a reminder our Traylor Ranch work days are the 4th Saturday of the month.

Just a couple of weeks ago everything was brown and not growing. My how a couple of storms has changed things. The grass is growing like crazy.

I expect we'll be needing to mow and fill holes in the trails. We could use a couple of teams with wheel barrows and shovels to fill the rodent holes.

We also could use two or three people with weed wackers.

Watch your email for any updates the week before in case there are any spe-cific requests.

If anyone has any questions on TRNR, please don't hesitate to drop me a note.

   A LITTLE HISTORY

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 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.

Loomis Basin Horsemen's Association, a non-profit information and awareness organization founded in 1983 dedicated to trails, the arena at the Park and the Rural Life Style. LBHA will be maintaining and managing the Nature Reserve with the help of the Sierra Foothill Audubon Society, other volunteer groups and friends. LBHA is now looking for chairmen to head both the Fund-raising Committee and the Maintenance Committee.

If you are interested, please contact Dave Faoro  (916) 663-3437. Dave  is  heading the Master Plan Committee .

Here's a map of how to get to the Traylor Ranch Nature Reserve.

LBHA will be in charge of volunteer workers to provide maintenance and scheduling of of the Property. Trails will be mowed throughout the Ranch. We are hoping to get everyone involved from 4-H, Birders, Walkers and Joggers both as workers and with financial help. LBHA will provide volunteers to help with the maintenance of the Preserve.

There is a lot to be done - and now that the Reserve is a fact, we shall begin. A mailer for
more donations will be sent out soon. Any suggestions for businesses who might be willing
to donate materials and or $$$$, should be passed on to the above listed numbers.

 COUNTY STARTS DRIP SYSTEM AT TRAYLOR NATURE RESERVE

The county maintenance crew mowed the center area and is now mowing the grass where they will be installing the drip system’s pipelines.  Please don’t ride/walk on these newly mowed areas – stay on the marked trails.   These new areas have been mowed only to make the installation of the drip system possible.  This drip system will enable the newly planted trees to thrive and grow to shade and add beauty to the reserve. We appreciate your cooperation in this effort.
