Caring for the land

Often times protecting land from development pressure is not enough. Human activities can cause damage to valuable natural resources. As part of what The Land Conservancy calls “complete conservation” we work to restore the ecological health and function of lands that have been damaged. Our restoration and stewardship program addresses challenges both on the lands that we own and on privately owned lands with interested landowners.

Our restoration staff and volunteers have planted more than 100,000 native trees and shrubs, repaired 5 miles of stream banks, removed 11 barriers to fish passage, restored a wetland complex, removed invasive species from hundreds of acres in the Dunes, and restored San Luis Obispo’s historic Octagon Barn.
