The Lower Truckee - McCarran Ranch Preserve

The Nature Conservancy recently completed a 4-year project to restore native plant and animal habitat along five miles of the Truckee River at McCarran Ranch, which was purchased in 2002. Now that the property’s ecology is at a state where it can withstand the pressures of public use, the Conservancy opened it to the public last spring. McCarran Ranch will provide the first legitimate public access to the lower Truckee River in more than a century, while offering one-of-a-kind recreational and educational experiences.

Additional videos, photos and audios about the project can be found here.
