The Restoration Trust is a non-profit land trust formed in 1998 to promote native habitat restoration and stewardship in central California.


Mission

The Restoration Trust provides charitable assistance to the public to protect land, including the acquisition of easements, to restore land to native conditions, to manage it to further promote native habitats, to engage in scientific activities and promote protection, restoration and stewardship of native habitats, and to develop and distribute educational materials to the public on protection, restoration and stewardship of native habitats (Adopted by the Board July, 2011).

Vision

The Restoration Trust protects and preserves native habitats. We also provide technical and other assistance to local communities who seek to preserve and restore native habitats. We believe that preservation will most often occur where the community appreciates the value of local habitats. The Trust helps foster that appreciation by working with the community, restoring habitat through hands-on efforts, preserving habitat through the acquisition and management of easements, and education.
