Anderson Valley Land Trust is a local, non-governmental, non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation and restoration of our unique rural landscape with its abundant natural resources for the benefit of future generations.


Anderson Valley Land Trust (AVLT) is the only land trust that primarily focuses on Anderson Valley and the Navarro River Watershed. We provide local expertise to help landowners conserve their land so their property can be protected, managed, and used to preserve its conservation values.

AVLT was founded in 1991. We have a small office in Boonville, with a paid administrative assistant who works half-time. We publish a quarterly newsletter, maintain a website, and sponsor a number of nature walks and other activities throughout the year. All of the work of forming conservation easements, monitoring the easements, and organizing fundraisers is performed by our all-volunteer Board.

AVLT currently holds 26 easements. We work with an annual operating budget of about $30,000. Our funds come primarily from public contributions, with occasional grants for specific projects.

According to the Land Trust Alliance, the premier national organization supporting the land trust movement, there are about 1,700 land trusts in the U.S., of which 60% operate on the all-volunteer business model. (All-volunteer means that an organization has no more than one part-paid employee.) LTA reports that the majority of all-volunteer land trusts hold five easements or fewer and have annual budgets of less than $20,000. This makes AVLT an above average organization, in terms of budget and number of conservation easements held, among other all-volunteer land trusts nation-wide.
