2017 was a record year for Land Trust of Napa County – 12,389 acres were protected; the most ever for a single year in our 42-year history.

The Montesol project kickstarted 2017 as the Land Trust’s biggest conservation easement ever at 7,260 acres. The property ranked as the county’s number one priority for biodiversity with a significant forest habitat and sources of water.

In addition, through several more completed projects the Land Trust protected streams and watershed lands that provide municipal drinking water supplies, wildlife habitat and corridors, oak woodlands, historic vineyards, working ranches and scenic hillsides on both sides of the valley.

Altogether, Land Trust of Napa County has now protected more than 70,000 acres of land in its 42-year history. That’s over 14% of the county.

The Land Trust is excited about the potential for land conservation in Napa County going forward. We have 20 active land protection projects in progress, alongside a wide array of important land stewardship projects.

Thank you again for your support in making 2017 a record year for conservation.
