Allensworth Ecological Reserve


The approximately 5,100-acre Allensworth Ecological Reserve consists of valley sink scrub and valley saltbush scrub habitat. Plants include iodine bush, goldenbush, atriplex, and San Joaquin saltbush. Animals include ground squirrels and coast horned lizards.

The property was designated as an ecological reserve by the Fish and Game Commission in 1983.  Past land uses include farming, grazing, non-toxic waste disposal, and subdivision for conceptual development.
