John Muir Land Trust protects and cares for open space, ranches, farms, parkland and shoreline in the East Bay. Vision John Muir Land Trust believes that the vitality of our open spaces is essential to the health of our earth, air, water and our native plants and animals - and all of us. Our vision is to ensure that the beauty, diversity and fullness of our natural areas continue to enrich and sustain all generations of life. We acquire, protect and steward these diminishing lands, and we foster environmental awareness so that each person understands the need to preserve our natural heritage.
Protecting Land Now and for the Future
Everything we depend on comes from the earth. Some of these resources are non-renewable, or in limited supply. John Muir Land Trust permanently protects land throughout Alameda County and Contra Costa County to safeguard our beautiful environment for people, animals and plants alike.
There is a long-term life cycle to finding, acquiring and taking care of all JMLT properties. When we say "permanently protected" we mean it. And the acquisition and stewardship of our properties means cleaner air, more abundant water supplies and increased opportunities for environmental awareness throughout the East Bay.
