The conservation project on the Marciel Ranch reflects the importance of balancing the need for increased housing development with the need for conserving the working lands that livestock and wildlife call home. In order to offset the effects of housing development in the bay area, 158 acres of the Marciel Ranch were conserved in 2017 through a conservation easement held by the Rangeland Trust. This agreement ensures that the property will continue to provide vibrant habitat for the federally listed California red legged frog and California tiger salamander.
