Big Sur Land Trust’s mission is to inspire love of land across generations, conservation of our unique Monterey County landscapes, and access to outdoor experiences for all.
Since 1978, our generous donors and partners have conserved and cared for over 40,000 acres throughout Monterey County. All of Big Sur Land Trust’s efforts -- land protection, stewardship, outdoor youth programs, volunteer opportunities, community engagement and events -- center around these values:
Healthy Lands: Conserving and caring for the magnificent natural landscapes, habitats and waterways of our region to ensure a sustainable future.
Healthy People: Providing opportunities for all who live in and visit Monterey County to experience the healthful benefits associated with access to parks and open spaces, fresh food, clean air and water, and a deep connection to nature.
Healthy Communities: Engaging in partnerships where conservation and civic participation increase community vitality, economic prosperity and social equity.
