Protecting and Sustaining this Natural Treasure
Friends of the Fiscalini Ranch Preserve (FFRP) is a non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation and protection of the 437 acre former Fiscalini Ranch. The Ranch is one of the last untouched public open spaces on the California coast, and FFRP, in collaboration with the Cambria Community Services District, has stewardship responsibility for conservation, restoration and public participation programs.
FFRP holds the conservation easement (a legal document that protects the natural resources) on the Preserve for the public trust. The organization is responsible for monitoring the property for environmental, public serving, and easement compliance purposes. FFRP reviews all plans for the property to safeguard this wonderful public resource.
FFRP also helps manage the property for the public by organizing volunteers to remove invasive plants, maintain trails and plant native species to help mother nature replenish her bounty.
FFRP organizes monthly walks with expert docents to educate the public about all aspects of the Ranch and sponsors a wildflower show each spring that displays over 500 specimens.
FFRP raises funds from public and private sources and also provides a forum and vehicle for public input and direction on the management of the Preserve.
Friends of the Fiscalini Ranch Preserve is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Donations are tax deductible to the full extent of the law.
