More ways to give
Your generosity fuels our success
From monthly giving to legacy giving. From in-kind gifts to gifts of stock. From a gift in memory of a loved one to a gift matched by your employer. There are many ways to ensure that the special lands and waters of the Feather River Country will be conserved for generations to come.

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

We can accomplish so much more together! Join us for a workday—in the office or on the land—for a fun and rewarding way to give back to the places you love.
Conserve your land
We work with willing landowners and local communities to conserve places they value. Landowners have a deep connection to their land and the gifts protected properties provide: clean air and water, fresh food, wildlife habitat, and scenic beauty. We help them conserve it for future generations.
