Greenbridges acquired the Adobe Ranch in 2003 and has been actively managing it since. The property now consists of 2,800 acres in both the high country and the Adobe Valley located in Mono County between Mammoth Lakes and Mono Lake. It is uniquely surrounded by hundreds of square miles of wild public land between the Sierras and the White Mountains.

The Adobe Ranch is close to Mammoth Lakes and Mono Lake, and is surrounded by miles of protected public lands.

The Adobe Ranch includes a wide variety of landscapes and habitat, ranging from the sage grasslands and irrigated meadows of the Adobe Valley to the riparian corridors, Jeffrey pine forests and aspen stands of the canyons and high country above. The ranch presents tremendous opportunities for recreation, including hiking, hunting, fishing, and birding. In 2009, the Audubon Society named the Adobe Valley as an IBA (Important Bird Area). The Adobe Reservoir offers superb Native German Brown trout fishing, free of whirling disease, below beautiful red rock cliffs. Check out www.sierradrifters.com/AdobeRanch.html for more info.

In November of 2007, Greenbridges completed a transfer of nearly 1,000 acres of the ranch into public (United States Forest Service) ownership to insure that important high country wetland, wet meadow, upland and riparian habitat is conserved and that the landscape is not fragmented by haphazard development. We are also busy restoring and protecting 1,500 acres of mixed riparian, wetland and upland areas via a conservation easement. Greenbridges has been working since 2005 to implement additional restoration efforts in cooperation with the USDA Natural Resource Conservation Service, the US Fish and Wildlife Service, and Agrarian Research & Management Company LTD. Learn more about the Adobe Meadows NRCS Wetland Reserve Project.

These efforts include the recently completed restoration of the existing pond, hosting an NRCS Streambank Restoration Class, and the addition of 7 interconnecting ponds along Dexter and Wet Creeks, improving wildlife habitat, and revised livestock management. Furthermore, Greenbridges and PRBO Conservation Science completed a baseline ecological survey in 2004 that, together with ongoing surveys, will provide the scientific basis for adaptively managing the restoration and operation of the Adobe Ranch as a working ranch and recreational property in the years ahead.
