What We Do

Protecting Lands and Wildlife

The Sacramento Valley Conservancy (the Conservancy) was founded in 1990 on two basic principles: open lands are necessary for quality of life and we must care for the land today so future generations may enjoy its physical and spiritual benefits tomorrow.

Can you donate to help protect vernal pools today? Every dollar makes a difference for the 30+ plant and animal species that are endemic (that means they are unique to this area and ONLY live here) to vernal pools! Vernal pools host 15 plants that are listed as threatened or endangered. Your donation today helps to support this work and ensures we have open space today and for future generations.🌱🌳
