History of Placer Land Trust
The 1980’s brought explosive growth and development to Placer County. The real estate market and business climate was soaring. A group of people close to the development process were concerned that development without guidance would lead to the eventual loss of what made the area special. That concern brought this group of like-minded people together in the living room of a Roseville home where they hatched a plan to protect the natural wonders that might be lost to unguided growth and development.
From that initial discussion emerged the Placer Land Trust and Nature Center in 1991. In 2002, we split into two separate nonprofit organizations so that each could focus on their mission. Since that time, Placer Land Trust has evolved into the premiere non-profit organization protecting Placer County’s wide open wonders, natural playgrounds, and the quality of life enjoyed by so many in the region.
