Anderson Valley Land Trust, Inc.
Anderson Valley Land Trust (AVLT) is the only land trust that primarily focuses on Anderson Valley and the Navarro River Watershed. We provide local expertise to help landowners conserve their land so their property can be protected, managed, and used to preserve its conservation values.

AVLT is a local, non-governmental, non-profit organization founded in 1991. A long-time member of the national Land Trust Alliance (LTA), AVLT adheres to LTA’s national standards and practices.

As of 2011, AVLT has joined with landowners to protect more than 2,200 acres of forests, riparian areas, agricultural land, oak woodlands, meadows, and views in Anderson Valley. Some of the acreage will be “forever wild,” where natural processes are paramount. Some has been designated as working forest or as agricultural land that will be managed using sustainable practices. Each easement is individually tailored to the property’s conservation values and the landowner’s needs and vision.

A presentation by AVLT to the Mendocino County Supervisors in 1993 resulted in the Board recognizing non-profit land trusts in Mendocino County as non-governmental partners in land and resource conservation. This recognition signifies the public benefits of conservation easements and helps landowner donors receive IRS tax deductions on their qualifying easements.
