Welcome to California's North Coast

With free-flowing rivers, rugged mountain ranges, and rural towns surrounded by open ranges, dairy farms, redwood forests, wild salmon runs and cackling geese, the North Coast region is considered one of the last best places on the planet.

The Northcoast Regional Land Trust is a nonprofit organization with a focus of protecting land and water on nearly five million acres on California’s North Coast encompassing Humboldt, Del Norte, and Trinity Counties. Find out more About us.

Barn Space Available for Lease

  

Recently rehabilitated barn available for lease near Eureka. Up to 5,760 square feet available to meet your storage needs. The barn offers agricultural space with lease range from 20-25 cents psf/month (depending on size) with a year-to-year fixed-term lease. Our preference is to lease the building as a whole but would consider leasing up to three separate areas (appx 1,920 sq ft each). 

The Northcoast Regional Land Trust (lessor) is dedicated to the protection and economic viability of working landscapes, farms, forests and grazing lands, and to the preservation and protection of land for its natural, educational, scenic and historic values. We are seeking lessees whose values align with this mission.

The barn is a total 8,400 sf (70'x120') with a new roof and siding. There is approximately 5,760 sf of open space available in the main section of the barn. Approximately half of the floor area of the main section of the barn is concrete; the other half is compacted earth. 

All uses must be compatible with the adjacent farm stand, row crop area and nearby trail that is open to the public generally during daylight hours. As an ag-exempt structure, uses are limited to livestock and storage. Retail use is not allowed. No cannabis inquiries please. Showings available through appointment only. Call or email the landowner, Northcoast Regional Land Trust, for application packet and showings. 

Northcoast Regional Land Trust Seeks Public Comment for Accreditation Renewal

In 2013, the Northcoast Regional Land Trust (NRLT) was fully accredited by the Land Trust Accreditation Commission.  Now, five years later, NRLT is pleased to announce that it is applying for accreditation renewal.  A public comment period is now open for any feedback from our landowner and funding partners, NRLT supporters and other members of the public.
 
The land trust accreditation program recognizes land conservation organizations that meet national quality standards for protecting important natural places and working lands forever.  The Land Trust Accreditation Commission, an independent program of the Land Trust Alliance, conducts an extensive review of each applicant’s policies and programs.  “We know from going through the Accreditation process five years ago,” commented NRLT Board member Rees Hughes, “that it strengthened our policies and internal processes and made us more competitive in our efforts to attract high quality projects and secure easement funding.”
 
Executive Director, Dan Ehresman observed, “Because the Northcoast Regional Land Trust is committed to existing in perpetuity, it is critical that we maintain the strongest of foundations. Accreditation ensures that we adhere to the highest of standards towards the permanent protection of the land and natural resources that we all depend on.” 
 
The Commission invites public input and accepts signed, written comments on pending applications. Comments must relate to how the Northcoast Regional Land Trust complies with national quality standards.  These standards address the ethical and technical operation of a land trust.  For the full list of standards see http://www.landtrustaccreditation.org/help-and-resources/indicator-pract....


 
To learn more about the accreditation program and to submit a comment, visit www.landtrustaccreditation.org, or email your comment to info@landtrustaccreditation.org.  Comments may also be faxed or mailed to the Land Trust Accreditation Commission, Attn: Public Comments: (fax) 518-587-3183; (mail) 36 Phila Street, Suite 2, Saratoga Springs, NY 12866.
 
Comments on the Northcoast Regional Land Trust’s application will be most useful by April 30, 2018.
