Stone Corral Ecological Reserve


The 981-acre Stone Corral Ecological Reserve includes northern hardpan vernal pools and related habitats. Stone Corral provides winter and spring wetland habitat for waterfowl and shorebirds, and has the potential to support reintroduced native plant species. Units include Yettern and Sequoia Field.

The purpose of the acquisition is to protect and maintain the sensitive vernal pool natural community in the Cottonwood Creek drainage. In this vicinity, the foothills are primarily used for grazing while the valley is devoted to intensive agriculture with the predominate use being orchards.  Acquisition prevented the parcel from being developed to intensive agricultural use, thus preserving its wildlife values. The property was designated as an ecological reserve by the Fish and Game Commission in 1995.
