Eastern Sierra Land Trust ESLT Charity Profile
The Eastern Sierra Land Trust is a nonprofit organization that works with willing landowners to protect vital lands in the Eastern Sierra for their scenic, recreational, historical, agricultural, botanic, watershed and wildlife values. We work to help families preserve their working farms and ranches in the face of pressures to subdivide their properties. We work to help landowners protect our region's plants and wildlife. And we work to preserve natural areas in andaround the Mono Basin National Scenic Area.
Founded in 2001, the ESLT is the first and only land trust based in Inyo, Mono, and Alpine counties.We began our work when private citizens and public officials in our area expressed interest in the developmentalternatives, mitigations, and habitat protections that land trusts can provide.
