During these unprecedented times, the mission of the Rangeland Trust is deeply rooted in our commitment to conserving the land and supporting the ranching families in your community. Right now, ranchers across the state and nation are growing increasingly worried about the future of their lands. One of these ranching families facing an unfathomable decision is the Bloom family.
The Bloom Ranch is a small and scenic paradise situated in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountain range in Tuolumne County. If Bloom Ranch is turned over to ambitious development plans, not only will the peaceful restorative views be compromised, but the important natural resources that keep our growing communities healthy will be at risk. The Bloom family has partnered with the Rangeland Trust and our community of supporters to help conserve not only the land, but also the critical natural resources found there:
Although empty shelves at your local grocery seemingly indicate that the demand for beef and produce is at an all-time high, there is a deeper-rooted struggle across the livestock industry that should be known. This bottleneck issue has been affecting many ranchers and their ability to sustain their operations. How did this happen?
We understand how powerful you make our community, when we stand together. In 2018, our supporters rallied alongside the family that stewards the Rock Front Ranch to show what’s possible when we come together for this shared cause. More than 200 donors contributed $500,000 to ensure that the Rock Front Ranch remains standing in perpetuity. We know you have the power to do it again, which is why we hope you will join us in writing the next chapter for another iconic landscape that needs your help. With a strong head start on our fundraising efforts, we know that you have what it takes for us to cross the finish line and ensure that this land will remain working.
This is a special opportunity for the greater community of both urban and rural audiences to find common ground and help conserve a valuable ranch for the future of Northern California and all the people and wildlife that call it home.
Today, you can make a meaningful difference in the ranching community. Rally with us and empower the families that steward our most valuable resource – the land itself.
