Together We Save Special Places
The Land Conservancy of San Luis Obispo County works cooperatively with both landowners and government agencies to find positive, mutually beneficial solutions. Our goal is to help prevent poorly planned development, protect drinking water sources, restore wildlife habitat and promote family farmlands and ranches.
Since 1984, we have permanently conserved over 20,000 acres of land in San Luis Obispo County. With your support, we’ll ensure that San Luis Obispo County has wild natural areas, productive family farms and ranches, clean fresh water, and stunning landscapes forever.
Through voluntary and collaborative measures, The Land Conservancy of San Luis Obispo County works to permanently protect and enhance lands having important scenic, agricultural, habitat and cultural values for the benefit of people and wildlife.
Accomplishing Our Mission
We use a comprehensive approach to conservation to forever ensure the protection of special places in our community, both for us and for future generations.
- Conserve: Land acquisition, easements, planning & studies
- Care: Restoration, stewardship, monitoring
- Connect: Community education, events, volunteering
Through strategic partnerships, we gather resources to buy historic & scenic lands, critical habitats, and cultural enclaves. We also work with private landowners to conserve their land and heritage while keeping it in family ownership. Another focus is repairing broken landscapes and healing streams & wetlands that are struggling under years of abuse. Through it all, we provide opportunities that bond people to the heritage, wonder and bounty of our vital lands.
