Protecting and Sustaining this Natural Treasure

Friends of the Fiscalini Ranch Preserve (FFRP) is a non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation and protection of the 437 acre former Fiscalini Ranch. The Ranch is one of the last unspoiled public open spaces on the California coast, and FFRP, in collaboration with the Cambria Community Services District, has stewardship responsibility for conservation, restoration, and public participation programs.

FFRP holds the Conservation Easement that protects and restores the natural resources on the Preserve and maintains access as a public trust. The organization is responsible for monitoring the property for purposes of environmental, public service, and easement compliance. FFRP reviews all plans affecting the Ranch to safeguard this wonderful public resource.


In addition, FFRP assists in managing the property for the public by organizing volunteers to remove invasive plants, maintain trails, and plant native species to restore natural habitats. FFRP organizes monthly walks with expert docents to educate the public about all aspects of the Ranch and sponsors a wildflower show each spring that displays more than 500 specimens. FFRP raises funds from public and private sources and  provides a forum and vehicle for public input and direction on the management of the Ranch.
