PANOCHE: PROTECTING HABITAT IN CENTRAL CALIFORNIA
Wildlife Heritage Foundation is protecting 26,475 acres of valuable habitat for several threatened and endangered species in the Panoche Valley. This expansive property is home to many plant and wildlife species, most notably San Joaquin kit fox, giant kangaroo rat, blunt-nosed leopard lizard, and San Joaquin antelope squirrel. In addition, there are regular sightings of California condor flying over the Panoche Valley!
-Kelly Velasco, Associate Director
Along with other special-status species, the Panoche hills are home to the rare giant kangaroo rat. The kangaroo rat gets its name as it moves in a bipedal fashion, hopping along on their hind legs like a kangaroo. This small mammal can only be found within grasslands around California’s Carrizo plains, which only represents approximately 2 percent of the size of its historical range.

AUBURN RAVINE CREEK CLEANUP
Come join us at 9am on Saturday September 15th at McBean Park for our Auburn Ravine Creek Clean-Up. WHF is partnering with the Great Sierra River Clean-Up, a volunteer event to remove trash and restore healthy waterways throughout the Sierra Nevada Region.
Our local water wonder, Auburn Ravine Creek, originates in the foothills of Auburn and flows through the town of Lincoln to Natomas and finally finds it termination point into the Sacramento River. Come join us and stop the trash where it starts! To sign up for the Auburn Ravine Creek Clean-Up visit our website at www.wildlifeheritage.org
