Bear Yuba Land Trust exists to create a balance between nature and the needs of the people who make a life and a livelihood here.
This is our home.
Our mission is to enrich the deep community connection with our land − today, tomorrow, and forever.
Special Year-End Match
Making a year-end gift to Bear Yuba Land Trust helps protect the places where we live, work and play. Together we can keep our landscapes open and intact, enjoy miles of new trails, support family farms and ranches, and protect our rivers and creeks.
Bear Yuba Land Trust leadership has pledged $10,000 to match every year-end donation we receive, so your gift will be have double the impact! Your gift is tax-deductible and every dollar stays local.
Those who donate $250 will receive Alicia Funk's book, Living Wild: Gardening, Cooking and Healing with Native Plants of California. Donations of $500 or more will receive a copy of Living Wild and a beautiful gift basket of wild crafted goods from Flavors of the Wild.
Thank you for your support!
