Thomas Ranch—Success!

Date: Dec 15, 2010

After more than three years of work, Solano Land Trust, Travis AFB and the Hamilton Family (the property owners) celebrated the closing of the Thomas Ranch South conservation easement this September. This is Solano Land Trust's twenty-first easement and will add 147 acres of grazing and vernal pool land to the 19,892 acres that the organization has permanently protected since 1986. With this easement, Solano Land Trust has now protected over 20,000 acres of working farmlands and natural areas in Solano County, a milestone to celebrate throughout our 25th anniversary in 2011.

"This project is a great example of how Solano Land Trust builds partnerships with diverse groups to preserve land and support local farmers, and in this case, support one of the largest employers in Solano County," said Ian Anderson, farmer and president of Solano Land Trust.
