Preserving our lands and heritage through land conservation

Land Acknowledgement:
We at the Sutter Buttes Regional Land Trust acknowledge that our mission of protecting and maintaining the natural and agricultural resources in and around the region currently called the Sutter Buttes was carried out by members of local indigenous tribes for thousands of years. We acknowledge that this indigenous stewardship was disrupted, leading to a loss of cultural heritage and a loss of native plants and animals. We acknowledge that people with ancestral connections to the land are still here among us today, and that a myriad of people consider these lands sacred.

Thank you to all our contributing Photographers! We so appreciate you!
A special thank you to DARREN CALLAGHAN for our 2023/24 Calendar Cover Photo and our Website Header.

and Yuba Counties

Each year you can see the wonderful work you accomplish through the land trust. Together, we've committed resources to protect over 2,000 acres of conservation lands. As a member, you are part of each of our projects. Your support allows us to lay the ground work of time, information and connections from which all of our land protection projects are born. There are many great projects underway now and with your membership this year, you'll help protect the land within the Sutter Buttes and beyond, help maintain the Pacific Flyway for migrating waterfowl, as well as, preserving important agricultural lands that support our local farming and economy.

Current and Upcoming Events

The 20th Annual Calendar Photo Contest Now Open

The Sutter Buttes Regional Land Trust has begun planning for the 2025 Sutter Buttes Calendar and invites you to participate by submitting photos for consideration.  Deadline for submissions will be April 26, 2024.

Every year, we receive hundreds of photos from extremely talented photographers in the Northern California area, and it is these high-quality, artistic photos that have helped make this annual calendar fundraiser a huge success.  Proceeds from the sales of this calendar help to fund the efforts of the non-profit organization to protect the land and natural resources of the Sutter Buttes and surrounding region for present and future generations.
