Antelope Valley Conservancy


Antelope Valley Conservancy serves the community:

preserving native habitats and watershed sites

preserving wildlife corridors and regional trails

promoting ecoregional planning


We acknowledge future generations’ interests in land that maintains community character, scenic beauty, and native habitats. We acknowledge the right of nature to retain territory, particularly functional habitats and connectivity for native plants and animals.

Land conservation, regional economy, and quality of life issues (health, crime, transportation) are related. As the Antelope Valley region grows, we must preserve essential ecosystem functions for future generations, preserve our trail system, and ensure we can enjoy the economic benefits of conservation planning.


AV Conservancy is locally based, and devoted to the community's wellbeing. AV Conservancy is authorized by the California Department of Fish and Game to hold mitigation lands and establish land banks. AVC assists agencies and developers to implement in lieu fee mitigation, and provides a channel for funding to preserve lands within the community instead of out of area.

AV Conservancy is a 501(c)(3) public benefit corporation, with IRC 170(b)(1)(A)(vi) public charity status to ensure land donors qualify for tax benefits.

We acknowledge that our community's trails are valuable to our quality of life, economy, and future. AV Conservancy's trails committee (AVTREC) serves the community by mapping regional trails, advocating and negotiating for the master trail plan, facilitating trail connectivity and easements, and hosting events. For 25 years, AVTREC has been a force for Antelope Valley's desert and mountain conservation and for preservation of regional trails.
