Welcome to California's North Coast

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.

Bringing Cows and Coho Together

We are thrilled to have chatted with the Times Standard at Freshwater Farms Reserve last week about the Graham-Long dairy barn rehabilitation project and the Wood Creek restoration project. Its an exciting and busy time for NRLT - we are expanding and enhancing critical salmon habitat, and restoring an iconic building representative of the agricultural heritage of Humboldt County. We are so happy to share this progress with the community. Please read the article below to learn more:

Bringing Cows and Coho Together


Walking and Wine with Our Fabulous Advisors!

On August 16th, we convened for our Annual Advisors Meeting at Freshwater Farms Reserve with NRLT Advisors, Board members, and staff. After a short reception and review of current NRLT projects (totaling over 30,000 acres), we did a walking tour of the property with a behind the scene view of the Wood Creek Phase II Restoration currently in progress. We then gathered on hay bales near the barn (where construction has just begun) with wine and chocolate to discuss  areas of opportunity for the future work of NRLT. The conversation was filled with dynamic voices, representing the maturity and diversity or our organization. We greatly appreciated the sincere feedback and substantial insight!


Cows & Coho, Take Two!
