Our work at the Feather River Land Trust is never just about conserving land; it’s also about conserving and restoring people’s relationship to land. We see this relationship as critical to community health, building a conservation and stewardship ethic in our communities, and ensuring the long-term success and viability of land conservation.

We believe that conserving and taking care of land will only be sustainable if our work touches us all, is relevant to us all, and if it benefits our whole community.

FRLT’s Land and People Program builds upon the success of our Land Conservation and Land Stewardship programs by using lands conserved by FRLT to maintain and enhance diverse people’s relationship to nature and the land in these ways:

  • Public access offers exceptional nature-based recreation and education
  • Learning Landscapes conserves accessible outdoor classrooms for local schoolchildren and supports outdoor learning and stewardship
  • Sustainable Agriculture keeps ranching and farming families on the land, producing local foods and stewarding land and water
