Truckee Donner Land Trust


Mission Statement

To preserve and protect scenic, historic and recreational lands with high natural resource values in the greater Truckee Donner region and manage recreational activities on these lands in a sustainable manner.


Founded in 1990, the Truckee Donner Land Trust has protected nearly 40,000 acres of open space in the northern Sierra. After acquisition, the Land Trust prioritizes stewardship and public access on its lands - ensuring healthy ecosystems, functioning watersheds and sustainable recreation, with about 45 miles of trails built and maintained so far, as well as a public campground.

Program Details

Currently the Truckee Donner Land Trust has two acquisition campaigns in progress, the Campaign to Conserve Frog Lake, Red Mountain & Carpenter Ridge, and Olympic Meadow.
Major stewardship activites include forestry projects at Royal Gorge and Webber Lake, with watershed restoration projects at Perazzo Meadows, Lacey Meadow and Johnson Canyon.
Each year the Land Trust offers numerous docent-led hikes to get the public onto the land, trail days for volunteer opportunities, and much more.
