The Trust Takes a Field Trip

May 3, 2019 — Last weekend our staff, board, and project partners gathered outside San Luis Obispo, CA to experience the incredible beauty of one of our Trout Creek properties adjacent the Garcia and Santa Lucia Wilderness. These projects protect more than 800 acres of scenic viewshed and public trail access into the wilderness areas.

The Wilderness Land Trust and friends begin a hike towards the
Garcia Wilderness, California

We were greeted by lush green landscapes, spring blooms, cool clean water and yes, a few patches of poison oak – which we deftly avoided!

After our hike, we gathered for our semi-annual board retreat, where we officially welcomed new board members Sarah Chase Shaw, Zack Porter and Craig Groves, and returning board member Paul Torrence. I am continually amazed by the good work my staff and board accomplish to protect our nation’s wilderness, and I look forward to sharing the details of several new projects later this spring.
