Silver Saddle Ranch 2018 Holiday Party and Open House

Saturday, December 8th, 9am-2pm.

Please join us for our annual Silver Saddle Ranch Holiday Party with good food, drinks, and friends.

A community Open House to learn more about Silver Saddle Ranch, view inside the Red House and other ranch buildings, see Santa, meet board members, become a volunteer and/or member. Have some winter fun hiking, birding, biking, or riding at the ranch. Bring the kids as Santa will make a showing as well. Everyone is welcome!

If you have not come out to meet us before, be sure to come by and check out the ranch. The Silver Saddle Ranch (SSR) is a 703 acre working ranch located between the Pine Nut Mountains to the east and Prison Hill to the west.The Ranch and surrounding landscape is dominated by agricultural fields, sagebrush, and wetland and riparian habitats.

All our “old” friends are encouraged to come by, and why not bring someone new that has never been to the ranch before?

The SSR is subject to a perpetual conservation easement to protect, preserve, and enhance the conservation values of the lands.

This is one of our two annual Silver Saddle Ranch Fund Raisers and we appreciate any donation you can give. Better yet, become a member and receive a SSR mug, email updates on activities for 2019, and what we are doing to improve the facility and your experience at Silver Saddle Ranch.

The Great-Horned Owlets in 3 separate nests at Silver Saddle Ranch in Carson City are all in the “branching” stage. This is 2 owlets on a branch away from their nest, which had 4 owlets in it. Last year in this same nest, the female had 5 owlets. Both numbers are amazing for a Great-Horned Owl nest. A very productive female, assuming she is the same one that nested there last year. ~Rob Lowry
