Preserving agricultural land has become the primary focus of Sutter Buttes Regional Land Trust. We believe this expanded effort will help preserve food production and the American agricultural heritage through the increased awareness of land conservation and its values for our region. With more than 20 land trusts working to protect Central Valley farmland, habitat and native vegetation, increased demand for partners to manage and monitor easements has become essential. Becoming an active and respected regional conservation partner is necessary for the long-term sustainability of the organizations and it efforts.
Our Sutter, Colusa and Yuba County region encompasses approximately 2,200 square miles or 1.4 million acres located in the valley of north of Sacramento. Current growth projections will result in as much as 34,000 acres of critical habit, agricultural lands, wetlands, and open space slated for development.
