Yolo Land Trust conserves farm and ranch land by providing farmers and ranchers a viable financial alternative to selling their land for development. Conservation easements can help keep farmers farming, and ranchers ranching. Yolo Land Trust has been extremely successful in leveraging funds from multiple sources to build a conservation portfolio of 11,000 acres of permanently conserved farmland protected through over 60 conservation easements, and the fee ownership of an easement-protected farm.
Yolo Land Trust also supports habitat protection for plants and animals that depend upon farmland and the adjacent sloughs, creeks and rivers for survival. Yolo Land Trust is respected by federal, state and local agencies as evidenced by the grants received to support its conservation work.
