Placer Land Trust
Placer Land Trust works with willing landowners and conservation partners to protect Placer County's valued natural and agricultural lands for future generations.
The 1980's brought explosive growth and development to Placer County. The real estate market and business climate was soaring. A group of people close to the development process were concerned that development without guidance would lead to the eventual loss of what made the area special. That concern brought this group of like-minded people together in a living room of a Roseville home, where they would discuss the natural wonders that might be lost to unguided growth and development, and what they could do to protect them.
The Placer Land Trust and Nature Center formed from that discussion in 1991. Since that time, Placer Land Trust has evolved into the premiere non-profit organization protecting Placer County's wide open wonders, natural playgrounds, and the quality of life enjoyed by so many in the region.
