  • (LEMON COVE, CA) - Sequoia Riverlands Trust has announced the annual weekends-only reopening of its Homer Ranch Preserve near Lemon Cove, effective November 1. With some precipitation in the forecast, SRT conservation staff agreed to reopen the preserve on schedule given the potential relief from the ongoing dry conditions. SRT closes Homer Ranch each year from June through October due to fire danger.

    "We hope visitors will enjoy their visits to Homer Ranch Preserve while being mindful of the surrounding conditions. Report any unusual situations and remember that some cellular providers do not offer coverage at the preserve," said Aaron Collins, SRT Director of Marketing and Communications. Additionally, be mindful that Homer Ranch is a working cattle ranch, and remember that while rattlesnakes and other preserve residents are preparing for the winter, the longer warm season means they may remain active later than has historically been the case. Bring water, wear hats and long pants, and enjoy the scenery!
