People are the Heart of Siskiyou Land Trust


Volunteers having fun together at the 2016 Picnic in the Park community celebration.

Siskiyou Land Trust is blessed by the amazing community support that gets so much done in our community and on our county’s lands. As we looked back at 2016, we were astonished and so honored when we stopped to add up our volunteer efforts: 3,537 hours of volunteer time in 2016!

Those hours were spent clearing trails, maintaining open space, performing monitoring on conserved lands, installing benches, putting on fundraisers and community events, leading field trips, grant writing, providing office support, putting on the slideshow series, and supporting fundraising efforts.
