Since 1998, we have led the efforts in the north state to permanently protect nearly 24,000 acres of working ranches and agricultural lands, wildlife habitats and migration corridors, and scenic and recreational landscapes.


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!
