Manzanita Ridge Preserve


Manzanita Ridge Preserve

The Manzanita Connector

The Manzanita Ridge Preserve fortifies and expands the already vibrant fish and wildlife habitat of the nearby Manzanita Creek watershed, Manzanita Park, Lindberg Tidelands, North Fork Manzanita Creek and Miller-Kirkman Preserves. All told, roughly 170 acres of contiguous lands and waters will now be safeguarded.

The richly forested property consists of a lush understory of sword fern, red huckleberry, osoberry, salal, snowberry, vanilla leaf, and Oregon grape. Invasive plants like English ivy will be removed during upcoming stewardship work.

Please note that the Preserve is not currently open to the public – access to the property is limited to Land Trust tours at this time.
