Labor Day Weekend is here, and we hope that your plans allow you to stay cool and enjoy the beauty of the outdoors.
The generous $10,000 matching gift that extended our Lands & Legacy Celebration Paddle Raise is open through Labor Day! This incredible gift matches up to $10,000 in donations to facilitate conservation easements and all the work that goes into them.
Gifts made through Monday will be doubled until the match is met, and will permanently protect the thousands of acres of critical land in our queue.
In the last three years, we have shared incredible land conservation successes. With your support, ESLT secured three critical conservation easements at Hunewill Ranch, Ullman Ranch, and Centennial Point Ranch. Let’s keep this momentum of permanent protection rolling as we move towards 2023!
In the Last Three Years…
Centennial Point Ranch Conservation Easement permanently conserves 1,741 acres of land and over five miles of rivers and streams in Bridgeport Valley. This haven for wildlife was permanently protected in May of 2022.
Protected in March of 2021, the 1,424 acre Ullman Ranch Conservation Easement secured a sustainable future for the scenic heart of Huntoon Valley. Take a look for original stagecoach stop (the red barn beside Highway 395) built in the 1800s – it is still in use!
Spanning 4,100 acres of green meadows and sagebrush steppe, the historic Hunewill Ranch was protected forever in August of 2020. The land is home to Bi-State sage-grouse, black bear, mule deer, Swainson’s hawk, and many more species of wildlife.
Thank you for protecting the natural and working lands of the Eastern Sierra. If you have donated to our Lands & Legacy Paddle Raise, thank you! Please share this with friends and family who love the Eastern Sierra, too.
