Update of Ranch status during local wildfires.

The Bishop’s Ranch, October 17, 2017

Dear Ranch Friends,

We are grateful for the outpouring of well wishes and support we have received from our community. It has allowed us to provide work and other help to our staff, neighbors and friends.

The Ranch was not directly effected by the fire, other than the loss of scheduled groups. In the week following the fires, the Ranch has been a shelter for staff, family members and friends who where evacuated from their homes. While no staff members lost their homes, some have family and friends who have.

During the peak of the fires we were conducting hourly patrols of the perimeter of the Ranch to make sure that no fires had started in our area. Thankfully we did not encounter any here. We are all resting easier now that the fires are being contained.

We were sorry to have to cancel quality time at the Ranch for five groups. Today we are welcoming De La Salle High School as our first group since the fire, and are looking forward to our weekend groups. The Fall Hike scheduled for Saturday, October 21 is happening and we expect good air quality.

Thank you for your concern about The Bishop’s Ranch and our mutual community,

Jack Dowling
Advancement Director
