Who We Are

In just 25 short years, John Muir Land Trust has risen from its humble roots to become one of the leading forces for conservation in northern California. With 3,100 acres now under stewardship, many of the most beautiful places in the East Bay are permanently preserved for recreation, wildlife and scenic views.

Mission

John Muir Land Trust protects and cares for open space, ranches, farms, parkland and shoreline in the East Bay.

Vision

John Muir Land Trust believes that the vitality of our open spaces is essential to the health of our earth, air, water and our native plants and animals – and all of us. Our vision is to ensure that the beauty, diversity and fullness of our natural areas continue to enrich and sustain all generations of life. We acquire, protect and steward these diminishing lands, and we foster environmental awareness so that each person understands the need to preserve our natural heritage.
