2020-2024 BYLT Strategic Plan

The mission guiding BYLT’s Strategic Plan for 2020-2024 is to protect and defend the working and natural lands of the Bear and Yuba River Watersheds and to empower healthy, resilient communities through nature access and education.

The Strategic Plan will guide BYLT in reaching its overarching goal for the coming years, which is to continue building a sustainable organization as we strategically grow our conservation footprint and deliver a valued public benefit to our local and downstream stakeholders.


Bear Yuba Land Trust is an active member of the Sierra Cascade Land Trust Council (SCLTC).

SCLTC’s Strategic Conservation Action Plan was collaboratively developed by twenty SCLTC member organizations with generous support from the Sierra Nevada Conservancy. The Plan includes a web tool that helps visualize and quantify the benefits of conservation in the Sierra Cascade region.
