This CCA is protected by four Villages Kanhari Kalan, Kanhari Khurd, Surela and Jhulup. A woman from the Yadav community who used to worship a stone on a barren hill is said to have initiated conservation in Kanhari Kalan. Seeing her devotion, many others from the community started worshipping the holy spirits on the hill. This act of reverence for nature motivated the entire community to protect the hill and transform the barren land into a green oasis. Even though people stopped worshipping the hill rock after her demise, they continued to conserve the forest. In 1989, the Forest Department formed the Forest Protection Committee. But the FPC did not survive for long. In 2005, the Siddha Baba Manch was formalized with the support of community members and bye-laws for the protection were also reframed with consent of all the community members.
