The next generation is digging in, YOUR support helps deepen their impact!
25 years ago, Placer Land Trust founders set out to protect natural and agricultural lands that would benefit future generations. That mission is working as we are now seeing the “next” generation in action, and it’s obvious that our lands are in good hands!
YOUR year-end gift will support programs that enable Placer Land Trust to engage youth in making the world a better place for us all. Our work with the young adults of the AmeriCorps NCCC program is just one example of youth getting their hands dirty and playing their part to care for the natural world.
Whether you’re renewing your membership, or giving an additional gift this year, your support will…
Connect Youth with Nature: We often talk about the ways these young adults are restoring natural habitat, or making our preserves safer by reducing the fuel load. But spending time outdoors has many perks for them too. Their sign shows just a few of these benefits…stress reduction, peace, freedom, relaxation, spirituality, adventure, and simple happiness!
Develop Leadership Skills:
“Placer Land Trust incorporated so much service-learning [into our volunteer experience] and helped us see how the work we did was meaningful. I felt like I’ve grown so much, thank you for helping me to do so!”
Increase our Stewardship Reach: One team of AmeriCorps members can help us accomplish projects that we simply could not tackle with our small staff team. In spring 2016, our AmeriCorps team helped complete stewardship projects on 10 different preserves. If we had paid for this work, we estimate it would have cost us $85,000!
Please JOIN US in ensuring a bright future by making a gift that will keep on giving for generations to come!
