Our Mission

Shasta Land Trust conserves the beauty, character, and diversity of significant lands in far northern California.


I believe the conservation efforts being made by Shasta Land Trust and caring landowners will make a difference in the future. Please consider learning more and getting involved any way you can. We can all contribute something!

  • Offer opportunities for the public to experience the natural landscapes that surround us
  • Convert rail lines to area trail systems for hiking, biking, and horseback riding
