Sonoma Land Trust

Sonoma Land Trust conserves scenic, natural, agricultural and open land for the future of Sonoma County by:

  • Developing long term land protection strategies,
  • Promoting private and public funding for land conservation,
  • Acquiring land and conservation easements,
  • Stewardship including the restoration of conservation properties, and
  • Promoting a sense of place and a land ethic through activities, education and outreach.

Sonoma Land Trust is a local, non-governmental, nonprofit organization funded largely by membership contributions. The Land Trust works closely with private landowners, the Sonoma County Agricultural Preservation and Open Space District and other public agencies at all levels of government, nonprofit partners, and foundations.
