McCarran Ranch Preserve
McCarran Ranch Preserve

The McCarran Ranch Preserve was the Conservancy’s first restoration project on the lower Truckee River, and the work done there has become a model for how to fix the Truckee. As the natural communities recover at McCarran Ranch, it is becoming a unique destination in northern Nevada – a place of natural beauty and diversity for wildlife and people alike.
