Saving Clover Valley
Winter 2021 Update
Looking Forward to 2021 and Leaving 2020 Waaay Behind!
2021 will be Clover Valley Foundation's 22nd year of working to save Clover Valley's awesome natural attributes and pre-historic resources which are uniquely congregated in a serene, 2-mile long, 1-mile wide, steep-sloped valley. Its 622 acres remain intact as does our vision of a Clover Valley Historical Nature Preserve.
We continue to monitor the proposed development and egregious "phasing" plans, evaluate our options, and seek ways to protect this spectacular valley's natural resources in perpetuity for future generations, including but not limited to: much-needed wildlife habitat, passive trails, open space, natural ecosystem educational opportunities, and more.
In 2020, our outreach activities, such as tabling, were curtailed by COVID-19. However, the pandemic brought to light the public's intense need and desire to safely recreate and enjoy nature's wonders. In spite of being surrounded by a sea of Rocklin city rooftops, Clover Valley is secluded via its 300' high steep slopes with scenic ridge views of oak woodlands, meadows, creek, historical/pre-historical sites, amazing wildlife diversity, and more on the valley floor below.
Be sure to visit our photo gallery to see and understand what could some day be a renowned 622-acre regional pre-historic wildlife and nature preserve. We welcome any ideas from you, our supporters, and wish all the best in 2021.
