Since our founding in 1998, the Shasta Land Trust has protected nearly 25,000 acres of farm land, open-space, and wildlife habitat. As an accredited land trust SLT has worked with willing landowners, partners, local communities, and donors to achieve meaningful and lasting conservation of local lands. The scenic beauty, rich natural resources, and open spaces of far Northern California are essential to the health and vibrancy of our families and local communities. Through conservation a lasting impact for future generations has been created.
