Jack Zaninovich of Delano was a long time Conservancy volunteer and friend. Under his leadership, three unique nature preserves were acquired in the 1960s - Sand Ridge, Pixley & Paine. In his honor, these sites are now designated the Jack Zaninovich Memorial Preserve System. The Conservancy is continuing its work to protect the best natural sites in the San Joaquin Valley.
