About ESLT

Eastern Sierra Land Trust works with willing landowners to protect vital lands in the Eastern Sierra region for their scenic, agricultural, natural, recreational, historical, and watershed values.

Rich in natural beauty and a strong agricultural tradition, the Eastern Sierra is steeped in the legacy of the Old West. Wildlife habitat is abundant and diverse, supporting fisheries, migrating deer herds, and important bird flyways. Historic working farms and ranches are scenic, historic, and an integral part of our local economy.

Yet today the Eastern Sierra faces a threat. Pressures to subdivide and develop are on the rise. Productive working lands and wildlife habitat are at risk of disappearing forever.

By partnering with forward-thinking landowners, agencies, and conservation supporters like you, our team at Eastern Sierra Land Trust (ESLT) is working with our community to conserve the Eastern Sierra for the future.

Since ESLT was founded in 2001, we have built a reputation for collaboration, dedication, and perseverance. What’s more, as a nationally-accredited land trust, we hold ourselves to rigorous standards of excellence in order to uphold your trust and ensure that our conservation efforts are permanent.
