To inspire love and lasting protection for important lands.
Sequoia Riverlands Trust(SRT) is a regional nonprofit land trust dedicated to conserving California's heartland and the natural and agricultural legacy of the southern Sierra Nevada and San Joaquin Valley. The wealth, productivity and beauty of this land inspire our work to conserve it for the prosperity and enjoyment of future generations.
Our mission is to protect working landscapes, wildlife habitat and scenic open spaces, while ensuring that economic growth in our communities remains vibrant and sustainable.
To accomplish this, SRT engages landowners, farmers, conservationists, business partners, and governmental agencies in the counties of Tulare, Fresno, Kern and Kings to collaborate on land conservation throughout California's South Central Valley heartland.
To date, Sequoia Riverlands Trust has protected more than 11,000 acres. SRT owns and manages six nature preserves that protect 4 thousand acres of remnant landscapes, woodland communities and wildlife habitat. SRT holds conservation easements on 23 properties totaling more than 4,235 acres of protected land, most of them on working farms and ranches. SRT has also collaborated with agencies, other non-profit conservation organizations and landowners to protect 3,811 additional acres.
