Saving Clover Valley

Clover Valley has wonderful grassy hills, oaks, and rock formations among its many natural resources.

In Memoriam

Duane WilsonDuane Wilson — Loyal and Passionate CVF Donor

Duane loved nature and was active in efforts to preserve open space for his grandchildren and future generations. He was a supporting member of Clover Valley Foundation and volunteered many hours to preserve the last remaining open space in Rocklin. He is featured in a short documentary, "Clover Valley — Last of Its Kind," about the grassroots citizen campaign to save the valley. Donations in Duane's honor can be made to Clover Valley Foundation.

End-of-Year 2021 Update

Happy Holidays from Clover Valley Foundation!

Throughout 2021, Clover Valley Foundation (CVF) board members continued with efforts to preserve Clover Valley's wonderful natural attributes.

Quick updates: We are keeping a close watch on proposed "phasing plans," and send a big "thank you" to supporters who spoke or sent comments to Rocklin's Planning Commission and City Council (October 2021 meetings) to oppose the proposed five-year development agreement. Those efforts helped reduce the extension to four years. A local university received a donation of 100 acres in Clover Valley from the current landowner-developers. And potential funding sources are still being sought to acquire the valley and protect its natural beauty for future generations.

We welcome any and all ideas from our supporters and would greatly appreciate your providing your email address in order to facilitate rapid communication. Please send us your email.

The CVF board of directors, Doug Brewer, Marilyn Jasper, and Tony Rakocija, wish you the happiest of holidays and a great 2022.

DONATIONS: As a 501(c)3 nonprofit, CVF appreciates year-end donations for our ongoing efforts to save the valley (donations are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law). As we enter our 23rd year to achieve that goal, we thank our new and long-term supporters!
