Mission Statement

The mission of the Yolo Land Trust is to conserve land, ensure strong public policies, and provide technical support to local and state government agencies. Yolo Land Trust works to help landowners interested in preserving their property’s resources through its most common tool: a conservation easement (CE). Yolo Land Trust encourages public policies that support and enhance long-term agriculture, and promotes public awareness of the importance of agriculture and the need to preserve it. YLT provides technical support to local and state government agencies... It maintains a neutral position regarding land-use changes by simply providing information, background, and insight regarding the effectiveness and potential outcomes of proposed policies and projects.

Description

Yolo Land Trust (YLT) conserves farmland and ranchland in Yolo County California, by providing landowners with a viable financial alternative to selling their land for development. Yolo Land Trust has permanently protected 11,000 acres of farmland through over 60 conservation easements, and the fee ownership of an easement-restricted farm. Yolo Land Trust also supports habitat protection for plants and animals that depend upon farmland and the adjacent sloughs, creeks and rivers for survival.
