Tri-Valley Conservancy’s mission is “to permanently protect the fertile soils, rangelands, open space and biological resources and to support a viable agricultural economy, in the Tri-Valley area.”
We accomplish this mission by providing landowners with a flexible, voluntary alternative to subdividing or developing their property.
One facet of our work is protecting land through acquisition. Tri-Valley Conservancy works with willing landowners to acquire property development rights through the legal arrangement of a conservation easement. In doing so, we ensure that a property will be protected from future development.
Another facet of our work is taking care of the land through stewardship associated with each easement, including annual property visits and consultation with property owners about the terms of their easement.
