Friday October 27th 10am-12:30pm
Apsuun Community Center
1836 Apsuun Rd, Yreka Ca
For the purpose of long-term conservation of working lands, SLT will be hosting this event to provide information for the agriculture community in Siskiyou County regarding the potential long-term opportunities related to conservation easements and ways CE’s can assist with ranch planning and stewardship.
This event will provide a space for landowners to learn about Agriculture Land Easements (ALES) on privately owned ranches and rangeland to benefit water, soil, and salmonoid fisheries recovery in the Mid-Klamath and Upper Sacramento Basins. An ALE will ensure the protection of these natural resources as it will prevent development and subdivision of the properties, over grazing and other activities harmful to water quality, soil and habitat values. An ALE will also allow agriculture and other activities to continue as compatible with conservation values.
Siskiyou Land Trust is proud to participate in The Western Water and Working Lands Framework for Conservation Action through Regional Conservation Partnership Program (RCPP). This partnership with NRCS works to support farmers and ranch landowners throughout the nation to implement systems that conserve water and soil resources, improve the health of wildlife habitats and increase climate resilience.
NRCS is laying the foundation to help producers conserve water, address climate
change and build drought resiliency in the West. In this framework, NRCS identifies six major water and land resource management challenges, guidelines for identifying vulnerable agricultural landscapes and 13 strategies for leaders in western states to use now in collaboration with partners, water resource managers and producers.
“Our goal is to help secure clean and available water supplies, healthy soils, resilient landscapes and thriving agricultural communities, now and in the future.”NRCS
