Sonoma Land Trust has the privilege, and the responsibility, to own and care for a network of 18 preserves encompassing more than 4,000 acres of land for wildlife habitat, farming and ranching, and for recreation and well-being. These preserves represent the diverse human communities and the iconic natural landscapes that we call home. The Land Trust actively manages these lands for redwoods and oaks, steelhead and mountain lions, serpentine wildflowers and farm-to-table vegetables, and for the hikers and nature lovers who have so generously supported our work for more than four decades. Our preserves fall into two categories: Anchor Preserves and Ecological Preserves. Our overall stewardship approach for each preserve is guided by the conservation goals for each preserve and what is ecologically appropriate.
