About Haire Ranch/Skaggs Island
Sonoma Land Trust has acquired the 1,092-acre Haire Ranch on Skaggs Island along Highway 37, a long-sought after acquisition that will enable the restoration of 4,400 acres of diked baylands to wetlands. SLT has joined with the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) in a local-federal partnership that demonstrates the national significance of wetland restoration in San Pablo Bay. Immediately upon close of escrow, the Land Trust transferred the ranch to USFWS, which already owns the remaining 3,300 acres of Skaggs Island. Both are now part of the San Pablo Bay National Wildlife Refuge and is currently being restored to marsh habitat, turning the clock back 130 years.
