Living with Wildlife

The Preserve community loves wildlife, but what happens when the rare conflict arises? The Conservancy staff takes the time to educate and advise community members on a wide variety of wildlife issues including safety around the home and on the trail, discouraging wildlife damage to homes and gardens, and preventing wildlife entrapments in landscape and architectural features.

The Santa Lucia Conservancy has curated a library of guidance documents to help land owners and neighbors adopt environmentally friendly practices on The Preserve.
