About Our Mission and Vision
Sequoia Riverlands Trust (SRT) is a regional nonprofit land trust dedicated to strengthening California's heartland and the natural and agricultural legacy of the southern Sierra Nevada and San Joaquin Valley. The wealth, productivity and beauty of this land inspire our work to conserve it for the prosperity and enjoyment of future generations.
To accomplish this, SRT engages landowners, farmers, conservationists, business partners, and governmental agencies in the counties of Tulare, Fresno, Kern and Kings to collaborate on land conservation throughout California's South Central Valley heartland.
To date, Sequoia Riverlands Trust has protected more than 20,000 acres. SRT owns and manages six nature preserves that protect 4,089 acres of remnant landscapes, woodland communities and wildlife habitat. SRT holds conservation easements on more than 13,366 acres of protected land, most of them on working farms and ranches. SRT has also collaborated with agencies, other non-profit conservation organizations and landowners to protect almost 4,700 additional acres, including 2,388 acres with deed restrictions on Bureau of Land Management land within Carrizo Plain National Monument.
