MAY/JUNE 2018 NEWSLETTER
MESSAGE FROM THE MANAGER
Ready or not, here you come, to the Ranch. The official season has begun, the cabins are clean and the pool is cool. The transition from spring to summer is happening. Turkey season is coming to an end and the best time of year at the Ranch is now! Natural Resources Agency and Private Land Management representatives from the State of California have visited and John Brown was awarded accolades to how well our land is being managed. Please look into how you can help to keep this program thriving. Our reserve study is scheduled and we are making progress. I personally look forward to always improving what we can and preserving what has made R Ranch such a wonderful place.
Your manager, Frank Clifton
