Private Lands Program
The goal of Siskiyou Land Conservancy’s Private Lands Program is to protect biological diversity and habitat on privately owned lands in the five-county region we serve (Humboldt, Mendocino, Siskiyou, Trinity and Del Norte).
Siskiyou Land Conservancy works with willing sellers to acquire private lands or to develop conservation easements to protect lands under existing ownership. We actively explore regions containing critical habitat and contact private land owners to explore options for protecting their properties.
We are specifically devoted to protecting the Smith River, in the far northwestern corner of California.
In addition to protecting habitat, Siskiyou Land Conservancy is dedicated to creating or adding to wildlife migration corridors. Where appropriate, we also protect land suitable for public access and recreation.
Currently Siskiyou Land Conservancy protects five properties and 624 acres of privately held critical habitat in Humboldt, Del Norte and Mendocino counties
