About Mendocino Land Trust
Mendocino Land Trust’s mission is to conserve important natural resources of Mendocino County including working farmlands and forests, wildlife habitat, open space, scenic vistas, watersheds and to facilitate public access. The Land Trust provides stewardship and service learning opportunities on lands that it has conserved to engender a more direct connection by people to the land and water of Mendocino County. They promote healthy recreation in natural settings and sustainable experiences for residents and visitors in Mendocino County.
Recently, the Land Trust has been working to build access with new trails to view the California Coastal National Monument and working to coordinate efforts to pursue the expansion of the California Coastal National Monument.
