Tuolumne County Land Trust

The Tuolumne County Land Trust (TCLT) is one of many land trusts operating in California. It is the mission of the Tuolumne County Land Trust to perpetuate this area's important landscape values, including agricultural, scenic, natural, cultural, and recreational lands.

The main focus of the TCLT is working with the owners of private lands within Tuolumne County, who wish to protect the special features of their lands through voluntary private actions.

Since 1985, residents of Tuolumne County dedicated to the preservation of Tuolumne County's special private lands have volunteered their time and donated funds to assist the TCLT in its efforts. Members are affiliated with and generally care about conservation of: agricultural lands; natural landscapes; watersheds, rivers, streams, lakes, ponds and vernal pools; scenery and scenic vistas; recreational land, including trails; endangered species habitats; timber preserves; Native American sites; and historic sites. The TCLT is affiliated with the nationwide Land Trust Alliance; the statewide California Council of Land Trusts; and the local Sierra Cascade Land Trust Council.

The Tuolumne County Land Trust is a private, non-profit 501(c)(3), public benefit corporation. The TCLT protects land permanently by accepting easements that perpetuate agricultural, scenic, natural, or historical values. Occasionally, the TCLT assists private donors in the transfer of title of land to public agencies for protection of special values. With broad community support, land trusts can access state and federal funds not available in other ways. Our commitment is to reach out to all potential partners with whom we can share a common vision, including public/private partnerships, to benefit the whole community and to maximize the potential for land protection.
