We Need a Land Steward

We need help to keep the lands you love healthy and safe. As SIP orders continue (with allowances for safely-distanced, solo experiences out in nature), the number of people wanting to enjoy our amazing properties has significantly increased. This means our small and mighty stewardship crew is working extremely hard to keep trails safe and infrastructure maintained.

We’re looking for a person who is passionate about open space with diverse knowledge and skills that can help us conserve and restore land while caring for the infrastructure that serves our local communities.

Applications due on September 7.

Donor Survey Results

Thank you to everyone who participated in our recent donor survey! We’ll be following up shortly with those of you who had questions.

  • 39% of respondents said they may consider including BSLT in their will and joining our Land & Legacy Society.
  • The top ways supporters learn about BSLT are from friends and family, our website and email newsletters.

We are so grateful that you’re spreading the word about Big Sur Land Trust and we’ll keep doing our best to serve you and the lands you love!
