Eastern Sierra Land Trust

Eastern Sierra Land Trust works with willing landowners to preserve vital lands in the Eastern Sierra region for their scenic, agricultural, natural, recreational, historical, and watershed values. The bi-state population of greater sage-grouse, determined by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service to be a distinct population segment for consideration under the Endangered Species Act, occur exclusively in the Eastern Sierra regions of California and Nevada and utilize habitat occurring on both public and privately owned lands. Our organization works with interested private landowners, in close coordination with agency partners, to permanently preserve key habitats on which the grouse depend. ESLT has completed several large conservation easement projects that provide habitat for grouse and has additional current projects underway.
