Siskiyou Land Trust projects are located throughout Siskiyou County and beyond.

  • Mount Shasta City Park to Downtown Greenway Project – We are collaborating with Mt. Shasta Trails Association, Mountain Runners, Mountain Wheelers, Rotary, and others to plan a multi-use trail and greenway connecting the Mount Shasta City park to the downtown business district.
  • Rainbow Ridge Forest Conservation – SLT is working with the Shasta Resource Conservation District and the U.S. Natural Resource Conservation Service to establish a framework for landowners to participate in cooperative forest stewardship and long-term forest conservation of  land on Rainbow Ridge.  Rainbow Ridge is located on the outskirts of Mount Shasta, and serves as a an important wildland urban interface, wildlife corridor, and viewshed.  Siskiyou Land Trust is also working with landowners near Mt. Shasta and Weed to establish forest conservation easements.
  • Ranch and Farmland Conservation – Numerous long-standing Shasta Valley, Scott Valley ranchers and farmers are interested in keeping their land in agricultural production, rather than seeing them converted into residential or commercial developments.  We’re working to help them retain this historic and economic heritage through conservation easements.
  • The GardenShare Project – Siskiyou Land Trust partnered with landowner David Rees, Shasta Commons, and local volunteers to plant a garden next the our office on Alma Street.  This edible landscape demonstrates the importance of protecting agricultural lands in our communities,  and gives community members a place to gather together to learn how to grow food.  Gardeners plant the entire space together and donate a portion of the harvest to our local food bank.  The entire project has been made possible through generous donations of time and materials from garden volunteers and by donations of materials from individuals and local businesses.
  • Thompson Creek The proposed donation of a conservation easement covering 66 acres of forest and riparian land along Thompson Creek, located between Happy Camp and Seiad Valley on Highway 96 in northwestern Siskiyou County.
  • Great Shasta Rail Trail, a project to convert the abandoned McCloud River Railroad into a scenic multi-use recreational trail for public enjoyment.
