Magnolia Ranch (formerly Straza Ranch, and adjacent to Cronan Ranch) is a local wonderful recreation area off Hwy 49 north of Coloma providing habitats ranging from riparian habitats (along the South Fork of the American River and between Greenwood and Hastings Creeks), grassland, and oak woodland. There are stands of conifers, including incense cedar, Douglas-fir, Ponderosa pine, and foothill pine; an old built rock wall with mosses, ferns, and other herbaceous plants; grasslands harboring baby blue eyes and five spot; and old oak woodlands of valley, blue, California black, and interior live oaks. Spring is wonderful here – wildflower heaven!
