Spectacular 1,440-Acre Childs Meadow Supports Wildlife and Ranching


Tehama County—With its purchase of Childs Meadow in September 2007, a 1,440-acre mix of creeks, springs, mountain meadows and conifer forests south of Lassen Volcanic National Park-- The Nature Conservancy is protecting the region’s delicate ecology and its rural economy. Rare bird species such as willow flycatchers, yellow warblers and greater sandhill cranes depend on the riparian habitat that winds through the property. A threatened population of spring-run salmon downstream relies on those cold creek waters for its survival. Childs Meadow has supported local grazing operations for more than 100 years—a tradition that will continue under
Conservancy ownership through a lease with a local rancher.
