Hands-on experience at Heart K

It has been a great learning experience here at the Land Trust. I feel very much at home with the beauty of the Heart K Ranch and in Genesee Valley.

Vanessa Vasquez

People & Land Program Coordinator

Vanessa Vasquez coordinates FRLT’s People and Land Program to restore and enhance human connections to the Sierra’s largest watershed. Vanessa implements nature-based education projects and collaborates with the FRLT Stewardship Department to improve our Preserves for public enjoyment. She is also an integral part of our communications team.


The Feather River Region has always been special to our family. There is so much diversity in the landscape and so much to explore. We enjoy hiking, boating and swimming at Lake Almanor, and also taking day-trips to Sierra Valley from our home in Reno. I am happy to support FRLT who is working hard to preserve these special wild places.
