A shady oak grove tucked away in a canyon, braided streams and wetlands following the bottom of an arroyo, chaparral-covered badlands, hilltops covered with rocky outcroppings and the twisted shapes of Joshua Trees across the desert. All of these natural communities, and a myriad of others, are found in Southern California.
Southern California is home to rich and diverse habitats, and areas of spectacular scenic beauty. Riverside Land Conservancy is a nonprofit land trust that works to protect land and habitat for future generations. In preserving our natural resources, we seek to build community, preserve beauty and instill hope.
We are excited to announce that as of January 2015, the Santa Ana River Trust has officially become integrated as a program of the Riverside Land Conservancy. The Santa Ana River Trust was established in 2011 under the fiscal sponsorship of the Riverside Land Conservancy to help bring people back outdoors to enjoy the amazing-ness that is the Santa Ana River. With combined forces, we look forward to developing projects that beautify the Santa Ana River and surrounding green spaces, increase usage of the Santa Ana River Trail, and engage the community to inspire protection of the River for future generations.
