We believe that the Fall River Valley should be an example in California for managing healthy, working landscapes. We envision restored meadows and marshlands that attract waterfowl by the thousands and functioning cold-water spring systems that support robust populations of large, healthy wild trout. We foresee the Fall River becoming a critical refuge for cold-water biodiversity as climate change impacts the western United States. We envision Fall River ranchers continuing to produce healthy crops and livestock while also protecting water quality and sensitive habitat. Perhaps most importantly, FRC envisions a local community that works together to preserve the priceless way of life, the historic ranches, the large land-tracts, and the cultural heritage that will only survive by being passed from one generation to the next.
