Ranch Conserved for Kids, Ecology, and Agriculture
Loyalton Gets a Learning Landscape
With your help, in February 2014 the Feather River Land Trust conserved the 142-acre Loyalton Learning Landscape for Sierra Valley's schoolchildren - forever. The conservation easement protects working agricultural lands, outstanding wildlife and riparian habitat, scenic open space, and a unique, living classroom right across the street from Loyalton schools for K-12 students to explore, learn, conduct research, and become land stewards.
Conservation in Partnership
The conservation of the Loyalton Learning Landscape was accomplished through a unique partnership with FRLT, landowner Anne Chadwick, and Loyalton schools. Purchase of the easement was made possible with generous funding from the Sierra Nevada Conservancy, Northern Sierra Partnership, the Hind Foundation and the Gimbel Foundation with generous support for preliminary conservation work from the Mellam Family Foundation, Firedoll Foundation, Morgan Family Foundation and FRLT members.
