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.

News & Events

Getting out on the Land


NRLT staff, contractors and interns got out on the land for the 2012 retreat. The day was spent horseback riding on the Chalk Mountain Ranch, owned by Les, Janet and Gloria Barnwell. A conservation easement was completed on over 3,000 acres in 2010, with an additional easement of over 4,000 acres scheduled to close in 2012. The ride was beautiful and exciting, followed by a delicious barbeque and storytelling from Gloria about the history of the property. A special thanks to the Barnwell's for allowing us to experience their wonderful way of life!


Building Community for Conservation


On May 10, 2012 after weeks of preparation and integrated classroom curriculum, Six Rivers Charter School sophomores went to the 74-acre Freshwater Farms Reserve to participate in a field day. Part of NRLT's Biological Monitoring program, each year students collect data regarding the hydrology, soil chemistry, water quality, botany, and wildlife of the restored property.


Conservation Easement Completed on Miller Forest

Landowners of the 1,622-acre Miller Forest property, located five miles west of Willow Creek, have completed a conservation easement protecting productive forest land and critical ecological resources in perpetuity.
