SGI Featured Friend: Eastern Sierra Land Trust
March 24, 2014
The only local land trust focused on California’s Eastern Sierra, the Eastern Sierra Land Trust works with willing landowners who wish to explore options for permanently preserving their lands, which benefits the population of Greater sage grouse that lives in Nevada and California. ESLT brings specialized experience and skills to assist interested landowners through the conservation easement process.
The Sage Grouse Initiative is a partnership-based, science-driven effort that uses voluntary incentives to proactively conserve America’s western rangelands, wildlife, and rural way of life. This initiative is part of Working Lands For Wildlife, which is led by USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service.
