Monterey County Gives! for the Lands You Love

We are so grateful to be part of the Monterey County Gives! Campaign and we are calling on you to stand up for the lands you love throughout Monterey County. From Marina to Greenfield, Salinas to Big Sur and beyond, you can help us protect more lands, restore more habitats, and share the joy of open space with more people. Check out our video to learn how your donation will be:

  • Creating More Green Space in Salinas: Transform a 73-acre site at Carr Lake in Salinas into a spectacular public park for a community in great need of open space. Join us for a planting day in our native garden on November 9th or our community meeting on November 20th to learn more!
  • Seeding the Future Through Youth Programs and Land Restoration at Mitteldorf Preserve in Carmel Valley: Repair damage from the Soberanes Fire, inspire youth to care for the lands they will inherit, and make this magnificent property in the Santa Lucia Mountains once again safe for everyone to explore.
  • Making Communities Safer by Restoring the Lower Carmel River Floodplain: Create a mosaic of habitats and new trails along the lower Carmel River and help save communities from flooding during storms.
  • Advancing Conservation Opportunities in Monterey County: Provide us with the capacity to evaluate and act on new opportunities to conserve spectacular, unprotected properties in Monterey County.
  • Caring for the Land in Our Magnificent Region: Support our Stewardship Endowment and keep the lands you love healthy and resilient, benefiting people now and into the future.

Please donate now through Monterey County Gives! Your generosity will be transformed into wondrous beauty and unforgettable experiences, while you support healthy lands, healthy people and healthy communities in our region.
