Memberships are the backbone of this organization; by providing a solid base of support, BYLT can continue to protect, restore and care for local lands and trails. Your contribution to BYLT is fully tax deductible (tax ID #68-0256981). Members can either donate an annual sum, or set up recurring monthly payments as an Open Land Sustainer.

With your support, BYLT can continue protecting and defending the working and natural lands of the Bear and Yuba River Watersheds as well as enriching the deep community connection with nature, in perpetuity.  Community support through memberships, partnerships and donations has enabled BYLT to conserve over 15,000 acres, build and maintain over 45 miles of trails, and deeply connect people with the land that they live on through education and recreation. By keeping natural lands intact, we can protect our community’s rich and scenic rural heritage, ensure a local food supply, protect vital water resources, buffer against the negative impacts of climate change and provide open space for recreation, plant and wildlife habitat and outdoor youth education.
