REDLANDS GATEWAY RANCH “DRIVE TO THE FINISH” IS ON!
Nestled in the rolling hills of southeast Redlands sits Redlands Gateway Ranch, a 12-acre ranch in Live Oak Canyon with an old ranch house, outbuildings, barns, and pastures that connects the many trails of the inland area. The Redlands Gateway Ranch project advocates that we Protect Habitat (monitoring, barriers, patrols), Restore Habitat (education, research, native plant management), and Steward Habitat (trails, education, native plant management). We will expand residents’ and visitors’ understanding of and enthusiasm for native vegetation, wildlife habitat and corridors, and the synergistic relationship that exists between human life and wildlife on Redlands’ natural open spaces.
This is your time to help finish the project. No donation is too small!
We are more than halfway done thanks to the help of volunteers and donations received from local residents. When complete, Gateway Ranch will include an outdoor education center, and a native plants demonstration garden, as well as the parking and access for the more than 20 miles of trails north and south of the ranch. Redlands Gateway Ranch is poised to be the hub of the region’s outdoor activities, native plant restoration, and trails.
