Mendocino County is a unique blend of forests, ranches, farms and, of course, our wild and scenic coastline. All of these elements are vital parts to our quality of life and local economy. Preservation of these lands has been our mission for more than 40 years. But preserving Mendocino County goes beyond conserving the lands. It involves the whole community working together to steward the land and to create the next generation of people who will continue to care.
In that light, Mendocino Land Trust is dedicated to offering our members and the Mendocino community, residents and visitors the opportunity to connect with our land and to learn what it takes to steward them.
Please join us at an upcoming event and experience the value of preserving our magnificent rural lands.

Family Field Trips
The Mendocino Land Trust is excited to announce that in March 2022 we received a grant from the Community Foundation of Mendocino County to offer outreach and naturalist-led field trips to families with young children. We are especially interested in engaging with segments of our community that historically have not received equal access to parks and nature programs.Learn More
Mendocino Land Trust engages with many school and summer camp groups to teach about conservation and land stewardship. If you would like to have your school, community or workplace group join us for a day on the land, please contact our office at (707) 962-0470 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.Read About Anchor Academy
