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 inspire love and lasting protection for important lands, SRT engages landowners, farmers, conservationists, business partners, and governmental agencies to collaborate on land conservation throughout California's South Central Valley heartland.

For over 20 years, Sequoia Riverlands Trust has collaborated with landowners, agencies, and other nonprofit conservation organizations to protect more than 43,300 acres of natural lands across nine southern San Joaquin Valley Counties, including within Carrizo Plain National Monument. SRT's nature preserves protect almost 15,000 acres of native landscapes, woodland communities and wildlife habitat. SRT also holds conservation easements on more than 28,000 acres of protected open space land, many on working farms and ranches.
