Here’s how to make a difference
Community is the heartbeat of FRLT’s work. Support our work—and protect the lands you love—by getting involved. Whether you make a gift, lend a hand as a volunteer, connect with other nature lovers at our events, or conserve your land, we invite you to join us.
Donate to FRLT
When you give to FRLT, you're protecting a network of lands and waters where people and wildlife thrive. Your donation today will create a ripple of benefits, now and for generations to come—from the Feather River Watershed all the way to the Pacific Ocean. Benefits like breathtaking beauty, climate-resilient wildlife habitats, thriving agriculture, and clean water for 27 million people. Please join us today.
We give to the Land Trust because it's a local organization that does land conservation that's tangible—a person can see these properties that our giving has helped conserve. It's very rewarding. You know that the money you contribute is going to a good cause and is going to be spent on conserving land.
—Mike and Sally Yost, founding Land Trust members
I give to the Feather River Land Trust because I like what you do. I love the passion you have for good projects, like protecting the Olsen Barn, and keeping these lands pristine for our grandkids and their grandkids.
—Franci, Vision Circle member
I’m happy the land trust is working with farmers and ranchers who are already taking good care of their land. We’ve been doing it for years, and do it well, so these easements are a great way to promote local livelihoods while maintaining natural resources. That is a good thing.
—Gary Romano, owner of Sierra Valley Farms, conserved in 2019

Conserve your land

Explore the Feather River Country
From wildflowers to water, birding to barns, FRLT’s nature preserves showcase the beauty of the Lost Sierra.
Sierra Valley Preserve is an ecologically rich 2,586-acre preserve protected for its unique wetland habitats and Feather River headwaters. On the Pacific Flyway, the Preserve offers spectacular birding.
Mountain Meadows is a hidden gem of scenic beauty, fresh water, and habitat for a rich diversity of wildlife and plants. This special Maidu homeland and beloved place for quiet recreation was protected in 2018.
Olsen Barn Meadow, conserved in 2015, is 107 acres of meadow and wetlands with a 130+ year old historic barn next to Lake Almanor near Chester, CA.
We interviewed "Bird Guy" Ryan Burnett to get his hot tips for cold season birding in the Feather River region.
The historic 903-acre Heart K Ranch boasts scenic mountain beauty, diverse woodland types, montane meadow habitats, and historic and cultural resources.
Join us on August 20 for an online panel discussion to share and learn about local efforts to enhance community vitality and sustainability in the Lake Almanor region.
Nature photographers contributed their images to help conserve the Feather River region. We're grateful.
FRLT's founder Paul Hardy reflects back on starting the land trust in 2000 with a small circle of volunteers. In 2020, FRLT is a nationally accredited land trust, 1,100 members strong, and has conserved nearly 60,000 acres.
