Protecting what we love

in the Feather River Country

As a nationally accredited land trust, we’re experts in conserving lands forever. Since 2000, we've protected over 70,000 acres of ecologically and culturally important landscapes in the Feather River Watershed.

Conserving a healthy watershed

Now and for future generations

Together with visionary landowners, we’re protecting priority private lands for fresh water, wildlife, working ranches, outdoor classrooms, and community spaces where people from all walks of life can cultivate a love of place.
