Mission Statement

Placer Land Trust works with willing landowners and conservation partners to permanently preserve natural and agricultural lands in Placer County for future generations.

Description

Restore native habitat! Remove invasive weeds! Monitor water quality! Help build trails!

Placer Land Trust (PLT) believes that the quality of life in Placer County depends on preservation of our natural open spaces and agricultural lands. PLT works only with willing landowners and donors; participation in our land conservation process is voluntary. We generally protect lands in one of two ways: through fee title acquisition or through conservation or agricultural easements - each of which we purchase at fair market prices or acquire through donations from the landowner.

To date Placer Land trust has preserved approximately 5,000 acres of land in Placer County, including natural areas, wildlife habitat, family farms, working ranches, river and canyon lands, public parks, and trails and trailheads. PLT monitors several agricultural and conservation easements and actively manages properties that it owns to ensure public benefit for future generations. Where and when conditions and funding warrant, PLT works to enhance the public value of our properties by restoring wildlife habitat, controlling non-native invasive weeds, reducing fuel loads, improving public access, etc.
