Dear Fellow Conservationist,

We know you care, and that’s why we’re reaching out today, Earth Day, and encouraging you to step up again and be a part of MLT’s ongoing work. Alas, protecting the planet is not a once-and-done job. It falls to all of us to be the Earth’s guardians. Forward-thinking people have long known this to be a special obligation, literally a trust.

That’s why we are asking you to join forces with us and empower MLT to conserve more land, protect more wildlife, restore more habitats, and create more public access.

How? By making a monthly donation. Why monthly? There are several reasons.

First, it smooths out your donations into smaller, manageable bite-size contributions. And—this is the best part–at the same time, it helps us a great deal. Monthly donations allow us to plan better, to commit to projects knowing we have the resources, and to, frankly, keep the lights on even during lean times. Grants and big-donations may make the news, but your regular, recurring, donation really keeps us going! In fact, to encourage you to make the switch to monthly support of at least $10 a month, we’ll throw in a thank-you gift—a cool MLT T-shirt!

And it’s easy!

Check out the link below and within minutes you’re set and making a difference. Really! MLT has a long and proud history, thanks to people like you. But we’re not resting on past accomplishments. Look at the images below to see what is currently in the works. Help us continue to do the sort of work that can only be done by caring conservationists.

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed individuals can change the world. In fact, it’s the only thing that ever has.”

Thank you again for all your previous support. We are accredited and careful stewards of your trust, and have earned “Candid” rating from the Gold Transparency 2024 and a four-star (top) rating by the Charity Navigator, and we have many testimonials that speak to our passion and hard work.

“Soon after purchasing a second home in Fort Bragg, we became acquainted with the Mendocino Land Trust. From land restoration and cleanups to trail-building and habitat protection, MLT has built a solid legacy of preservation. While reading through a newsletter last year, we were impressed with the organization’s scope and realized it was time to ‘up the ante.’ Thank you MLT and the MLT volunteers, for making Mendocino County a better place to live and visit!”
