For the past 25 years Sutter Buttes Regional Land Trust, formerly known as the Middle Mountain Foundation, has enhanced conservation awareness throughout the Sutter Buttes area. After merging with the Yuba-Sutter Land Trust in 2007, the foundation expanded its efforts to address regional concerns.
The mission of SBRLT is to:
· Protect the natural, cultural, geological, historical, and scenic qualities of the Sutter Buttes
· Identify prime agricultural lands and natural areas that preserve and enhance the unique characteristics of the region
· Build partnerships with landowners, community leaders, and developers to balance conservation with economic growth, flood protection, and water quality
· Respect landowners’ rights and provide information to those who want to conserve their land
· Maintain an efficient, effective, and sustainable organization
