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.

For the Land: Wild and Working

The Northcoast Regional Land Trust would like to thank and acknowledge our incredibly generous community for coming out to our Annual Celebration, “Boots and Birkenstocks,” on October 8. Nearly 400 people from all different walks of life came out to celebrate the land we love, and hundreds of others donated auction items or food to this unique, fun, and successful fundraiser. 

Our community’s generosity and care for the land is truly inspiring. Because of all who contributed, we were able to raise more than $68,000.  Thank you to those of you who gave in this special way and those who work every day to steward our region’s wild and working lands.
