In the late 1990’s, a group of land trust leaders, all residents of the Sierra Cascade region, came together to bring more attention and resources to support the conservation of land in the region. The Sierra Cascade Land Trust Council, formed in 2003, traces its roots to this group. Today, we represent a broad coalition of 14 land trust organizations working in the Sierra Cascade region. Our members include regional, statewide, and national organizations that frequently partner on projects with an impact on the entire region—involving our watersheds, forest lands, ranches, and farms.
