West Nature Preserve

West Nature Preserve Located in Sacramento County, the West Nature Preserve’s stunning vernal pools provide habitat for the federally endangered tadpole shrimp and the federally threatened vernal pool fairy shrimp. Its year-round wetlands and grasslands provide habitat for otters, beavers and many bird species, including tri-colored blackbirds. WHF is working with McClellan Park to hold the conservation easement on this 222-acre preserve, slated to be recorded in the coming months.
