The 2020-2024 Strategic Plan will guide BYLT in reaching its overarching goal for the coming years, which is to continue building a sustainable organization as we strategically grow our conservation footprint and deliver a valued public benefit to our local and downstream stakeholders.

  • Expand its conservation footprint by 20,000 additional acres in its four Strategic Focus Areas, resulting in over 35,000 acres protected through acquisition and conservation easements held in the Bear and Yuba River Watersheds.
  • Ensure public access to nature by acquiring additional land to act as public nature preserves and expanding the use of trail easements to create non-motorized routes for connectivity throughout the community. Secure long-term financial health by bolstering its current cash flow and widening its network of sustainable funding sources. Continue supporting a proposed tax initiative providing public investment in watershed restoration, land protection and recreation while expanding its participation in mitigation programs such as the Oak Woodland Conservation Fund.
