Blue Oak Ranch Preserve
Located five miles north of Springville in Tulare County, California, Blue Oak Ranch is 1,147-acres of nature preserve nestled among substantial public lands, including Giant Sequoia National Monument and Sequoia National Park. Blue Oak Ranch includes rolling blue oak woodland, chaparral and the headwaters of Sycamore Creek.

Sitting within the Tule River area, the Blue Oak Ranch nature preserve protects an important corridor of habitat between the foothills and higher elevation streamside areas for rare mammals, like the Pacific fisher and for songbirds like the rare Swainson's thrush and black swift as they migrate between their summer and winter ranges.
