Sinnamon Meadows - Protected Forever!

BIG NEWS: the historic Sinnamon Meadows property is now permanently protected by ESLT. 1,240 acres of Eastern Sierra ranch land and important wildlife habitat are preserved forever!

Our recent Sage Grouse Stewardship Day at Sinnamon Meadows showed what teamwork can accomplish. Partnering with many local and statewide agencies, and with the support of the landowner, ESLT staff and volunteers went to work out on the land to help make a private working ranch more friendly to our local sage grouse. The US Fish and Wildlife Service was so excited by our collaborative efforts to protect agricultural resources and wildlife habitat that they produced their own video about the work we accomplished  - check it out by clicking the video above!

Preserving Vital Lands for People and Wildlife


The Eastern Sierra region of California and Nevada is rich in natural beauty and a strong agricultural legacy. Its working farms and ranches are scenic, historic, and a vital part of the region’s economy and rural character. Wildlife habitat is abundant and diverse, supporting fisheries, migrating deer herds, and ancient bird fly‐ways.

Eastern Sierra Land Trust recognizes that the land we share has long been used in a variety of ways. We work to preserve a healthy balance of uses — from ranching to hiking, wildlife habitats to favorite fishing spots — that can be sustained forever, ensuring a strong local economy and healthy environment for generations to come.
