With sweeping views, Boulder Oaks Preserve consists of 1,268 acres of
meadows and hills, just south of Ramona and north of the San Vicente
Reservoir – extending east from Iron Mountain and north of Fosters
Canyon. San Diego County acquired the Preserve in 2003 for inclusion
in the County
of San Diego’s Multiple Species Conservation Program
The Preserve consists of natural vegetation communities including open coast live oak woodland, open Engelmann oak woodland, southern mixed chaparral, scrub oak chaparral, non-native grassland, southern willow scrub and freshwater marsh. Seasonal pools within rock outcroppings are sighted, as well as vernal pools within the meadows. The Preserve supports a diverse number of animal species, including those that are protected.
