Your generosity makes an impact
Members who donate $1,000 or more each year are welcomed into our Vision Circle. This visionary group of conservation leaders is united in using the power of generosity to impact values they care about, like clean water, wildlife, history, education, and scenic open space. Gifts at this level allow us to take advantage of strategic opportunities when they arise. Our Vision Circle members give us the stability to weather challenges and the flexibility to respond to the highest conservation priorities each year.
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
It gives me great comfort to know that some of the special places I grew up with in this amazing watershed are being protected. I am grateful that the Feather River Land Trust formed years ago to help protect and steward this land.
—Ron Logan, Vision Circle member
It is so important to preserve and improve the way of life in these rural mountain communities, and the work the land trust is doing is an important part of that. For example, FRLT works with local ranchers to maintain ranching in this region, while also protecting waterways with simple techniques like improved fencing, and it is small innovations like that can make a big difference.
—Bill Knudsen, Vision Circle member and FRLT Board Member

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.

We’re conserving working family ranches in Sierra Valley, which hold the Sierra Nevada’s largest wetlands and montane meadows and sustain incredible biodiversity.
FRLT is ready to take more decisive and clear steps to ensure social and environmental justice within our own organization, and within the land conservation movement.
