In 2020, in the midst of unprecedented challenges for our communities, more than 100 donors made the decision to support conservation efforts surrounding the Bloom Ranch in Tuolumne County. These quick, collective actions meant that in a short time we were able to raise the final funds needed to begin the work of conservation. While the work took longer than expected, we are grateful to the responsiveness of this community that enabled the Bloom family to confidently deflect the development pressures that threatened their land and livelihood.
We expect to complete conservation on the Bloom Ranch in late 2023 or early 2024. If you contributed to this project, we will be in touch in 2024 about a celebration on the Ranch!
The Bloom Ranch is a small and scenic paradise situated in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountain range in Tuolumne County.

Stay tuned as we complete the work towards conserving the Bloom Ranch and keeping this piece of the Sierra Foothills for the people, livestock, and wildlife that depend on it.
