McClellan Ranch Preserve and Blackberry Farm
McClellan Ranch Preserve and Blackberry Farm are part of a 60-acre open space and recreational area owned by the City of Cupertino. Our main focus is along a one-mile stretch of Stevens Creek, where we are establishing “islands” of native vegetation and controlling invasive plants that previously dominated the floodplain of the creek. This riparian habitat — where the creek is hydrologically connected to its floodplain — is uncommon in our valley and particularly important because of its high habitat value and contribution to reducing flood flows.
To see the diversity of wildlife that lives in and moves through this site, check out our wildlife camera. The camera trap that took these photos was set up with help from our McClellan Ranch Youth Stewards.
