Support Fire Recovery on Feather River Lands

The Feather River Watershed is crucial for California's water supply—these are the headwaters of the State Water Project, a source of water for 27 million people—and its habitats sustain over 300 species of wildlife. We need your help as we work toward an ecologically sound recovery on the lands we've conserved, together. Help restore our watershed to protect California's water supply and build a climate-resilient future.

Conserved Feather River Lands

Vanessa Vasquez

People & Land Program Coordinator

From 2013 to 2022, Vanessa Vasquez coordinated FRLT’s People and Land Program to restore and enhance human connections to the Sierra’s largest watershed. She implemented nature-based education projects and collaborated with the FRLT Stewardship Department to improve our Preserves for public enjoyment. She also served as an integral part of our communications team.

Our family has been in this area for generations and I grew up here. I choose to support the Feather River Land Trust because I want my children to have the opportunity to develop an appreciation for the pristine beauty of our local landscape, clean water, and abundant wildlife. Those are things we shouldn't take for granted.
