Sacramento Valley Conservancy
The Sacramento Valley Conservancy was founded in 1990 on two basic principles - that open lands are necessary for quality of life and that we must care for the land today so future generations may enjoy its physical and spirtual benefits tomorrow. The Conservancy's mission is to preserve the beauty, character and diversity of the Sacramento Valley landscape by working with citizens, property owners, developers, public agencies and other nonprofit orgaizations. It works with willing sellers to create dedicated open space by gifts, private purchase, facilitation of public acquisition, conservation easements and by cooperative efforts. It preserves these lands for agricultural, natural resource protection, recreation and wildlife habitat purposes.
