As you know, the Land Trust had multiple properties and easements impacted by the Thomas Fire and the 1/9 Debris Flow. Coupled with an unprecedented amount of opportunity to preserve new properties throughout the county, we had a fundraising shortfall.
But thanks to our generous donors, we were able to close the $100K gap and meet our fiscal year end goal early!
Thank you for helping us fill the tank!
As with other organizations, annual operating funds are hard to secure. But, perhaps unique to the Land Trust, without these funds nearly all our work slows. Our ability to work on conservation projects this year in Orcutt, Sisquoc, Los Alamos, Gaviota and Goleta hinges on these operating funds. Our efforts to help landowners in Montecito and Carpinteria affected by fires and flows also depends on operating dollars.
