Anderson Valley Land Trust


Anderson Valley Land Trust (AVLT) is the only land trust that primarily focuses on Anderson Valley and the Navarro River Watershed. We provide local expertise to help landowners conserve their land so their property can be protected, managed, and used to preserve its conservation values.

AVLT was founded in 1991. Our office is in the historic Missouri House in Boonville. We publish a quarterly newsletter, maintain a website, and sponsor a number of nature walks and other activities throughout the year. All of the work of forming conservation easements, monitoring the easements, and organizing fundraisers is performed by our all-volunteer Board and a part-time office manager.

AVLT currently holds 27 easements, which protect more than 2,300 acres of forests, riparian areas, agricultural land, oak woodlands, meadows, and views in Anderson Valley. Some of the acreage will be “forever wild,” where natural processes are paramount. Others have been designated as working forest or as agricultural land that will be managed using sustainable practices. Each easement is individually tailored to the property’s conservation values and the landowner’s needs and vision.
