Area History

The property, once called Conrad Ranch, has historically been used for livestock grazing. In 1975, the ranch was placed on the real estate market, and because of its exceptional wildlife values, the Wildlife Conservation Board acquired it in 1977. The property was designated as a wildlife area by the Fish and Game Commission that same year. A year later, a $10,000 California Duck Stamp project was approved calling for construction of waterfowl nesting islands.
