Carr Lake Park Naming Deadline Extended, Carmel River FREE Tours, and more!

Submit your ideas for naming the Carr Lake Park by 9/10!

We’ve extended the deadline to Sunday, September 10 for naming the park at Carr Lake in Salinas. If you have an idea, please share it with us here. A committee of community members will select the top three names for Big Sur Land Trust and the City of Salinas to consider. The name will be revealed in late 2023 before the six-acre neighborhood park construction begins in Spring 2024.

We are so grateful to the people who have already submitted many ideas. Your engagement as a community with Big Sur Land Trust’s first urban conservation project is a remarkable highlight in our 45-year history of inspiring love of land across generations, conservation of our unique Monterey County landscapes, and access to outdoor experiences for all. Thank you!

Planning Ahead: There’s no time like the present

It’s a proven fact that time in nature is great for people’s health and peace of mind. Planning for the future also gives us more peace of mind. No matter when you decide to create your will, you’ll find helpful resources here. We also hope that you will consider including a gift to Big Sur Land Trust to support the lands you love throughout Monterey County. And if you do include a gift for Big Sur Land Trust, we hope you will let us know so we can include you in our Land & Legacy Society! Learn more >>

Big Sur Land Trust’s Carmel River Floodplain Restoration and Environmental Enhancement (CR FREE) project is one of the most extensive and important multi-benefit flood protection and riparian habitat restoration efforts on the Central Coast. Using a nature-based green infrastructure approach, it will reclaim the southern floodplain to direct water away from developed areas north of the river.

Join us for one of two slow-paced, staff-led tours of this project site on Friday, September 22. You can choose one at 9:00am or at 10:00am. RSVP >>
