Our Trail Keepers Say

“The Beachcomber Hotel Group proudly supports conservation and public access efforts in Mendocino County because we want visitors to enjoy safe, responsible access to our amazing destination. Together, we can work to ensure our trails remain beautifully protected so future generations can witness the wonders of this community.”



– Jon Glidewell, Beachcomber Hotel Group

“We’re grateful to Mendocino Land Trust for the opportunity to experience the diverse wildlife in the Ten Mile estuary by way of the Old Smith Ranch Preserve. As business owners who also offer coastal access to the public, we join the MLT in celebrating our amazing North Coast. We’re just a few more miles up Highway 1 and encourage locals to visit from noon to 5 p.m. Thursday through Sunday.”

– Sally Ottoson, Pacific Star Winery

“One of our favorite things about our gorgeous north coast is when you emerge from the forest to the stunning open sky and shimmery ocean as far as the eye can see. There’s no better spot to take it all in than Navarro Point, which The Andiron Seaside Inn & Cabins is so proud to sponsor. We think the peace and possibility that spots like these offer to a troubled world is a necessity these days. We’re so glad The Mendocino Land Trust nurtures them. We try to match their care with kindness and comfort at our fun, nostalgic, and friendly inn ( We hope to see you here – and at Navarro Point – someday soon!”

– Madeline Stanionis, The Andiron Seaside Inn & Cabins

“Sonoma Clean Power is proud to partner with the Mendocino Land Trust as a Trail Keeper. As agencies with similar missions, we know that protecting the natural beauty of local landscapes for residents and visitors of the Mendocino coastal region is better done together.” 

-Danielle McCants, Sonoma Clean Power

“We support Mendocino Land Trust because we believe land conservation is vital to achieving California’s climate goals, and because we are fierce believers that all people should have access to wild places to recreate outdoors, reconnect with nature, and develop an appreciation for the environment. The good folks at MLT are doing this work everyday, and it’s up to everyone who benefits from it to support the organization in the ways they are able.”

– Mischa Hedges, TrimTab Media
