Now more than ever, we rely on annual donations for conservation project operations. Please consider a tax-deductible donation to help fund important efforts this year including new trails, public use and land improvements, new conservation properties, outdoor public education and advocacy.
The Land Trust’s twenty coastal properties are managed by volunteers and landowners for public access, recreation and open space protections. Some of our properties include Houda Point Beach/Camel Rock, Baker Beach, north Luffenholtz Beach, the new Little River Trail property, Pilot Point nature reserve, and Saunders Park.
We need your financial and public support to pursue the following open space public-access trail projects of state-wide importance. These impressive projects are explained in more detail in our 2017 Annual Newsletter:
1. Create the Little River Trail as an extension to the Hammond Trail / CA Coastal Trail from McKinleyville to Trinidad.
2. Fundraise to purchase and permanently protect the Strawberry Rock Trail, rock and redwood forest grove.
3. Improve public use facilities, restroom and trail restoration at Luffenholtz Beach Park.
4. Coordinate with agencies for a safe, connecting trail system along the greater Trinidad coast.
5. Start a summer public hike program where scientists guide hikes on Trinidad trails, a volunteer naturalist training course and engage more volunteers in land stewardship.
6. Successfully fundraise for the ‘Protection in Perpetuity Land Stewardship Fund’, a restricted Land Trust savings account for our twenty-plus holdings to protect, monitor and maintain for many generations to come. The fundraising goal is $2 million via willed planned gifts and significant donations by the year 2021.
On behalf of our volunteer Board of Trustees, we ask you to consider a financial gift and welcome you to join or renew as a donor member. We depend on your support to accomplish this work.
