Clean water, clean air, and beautiful wild areas draw people to California’s North Coast. As our population increases, so does the need for residential subdivision and the development of the land that makes our home so special. The Northcoast Regional Land Trust works to keep natural areas and family-owned land free from development. Our work will have lasting benefits to the North Coast’s rural culture and economy for generations to come.
The Land Trust's programs offer a complete solution to land conservation for the North Coast community.
Our Land Conservation program seeks to protect and restore important wild and working lands in Humboldt, Trinity, and Del Norte Counties through voluntary conservation easements or acquisitions. We work with conservationists, ranchers, farmers, timberland managers, natural resource scientists, environmental advocates, and residents to protect one of the best places on Earth.

This program identifies threats and opportunities for conservation across the North Coast region. It addresses the preservation, conservation, restoration and management of ecological systems, landscape linkages and wildlife corridors, rare or threatened species, and unique natural communities. It emphasizes actions that are feasible from an implementation standpoint by integrating social and economic factors with biological considerations.
Building Community for Conservation
We are dedicated to education and outreach opportunities to engage the communities that we serve in our conservation efforts. We seek to connect people to their natural surroundings, transform cultural relationships to the land, and ensure for enduring resource protection. We achieve these goals by promoting naturalist-led, recreation events and hands-on, ecosystem education for local students. We also provide outreach materials and offer workshops to agricultural landowners, giving them the valuable tools they need to conserve productive farmland.
