Treasures of the Valley – Virtual 2020
The Conservancy annually hosts an event in the fall to raise financial support for land acquisition, stewardship, and public education/recreation programs. The occasion provides guests with entertainment, finely prepared foods, craft beer, wine, and a silent auction. Your sponsorship of this annual celebration will support the Conservancy’s initiatives to protect and preserve beautiful oak woodlands, wetlands, working farms and ranches, safe places for wildlife and outdoor experiences for our children. Attendees include local businesses, government officials, partners, major donors and community members.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this event has been adapted to an educational video series for 2020. Learn more and sponsor a film.
Before the pandemic, the Sacramento Valley Conservancy planned to celebrate its 30th anniversary in spring 2020 with special hikes, VIP dinner, family activities, and a concert. Formed in 1990, SVC was the first local land trust in Sacramento County, California. Now, 30 years, nearly 18,000 acres, 59 permanently-protected properties and 45 conservation easements later, the founders’ vision for a network of protected natural and working landscapes has taken shape, and will remain forever protected from subdivision or development. Although we were not able to celebrate this success in person this year, there are many ways you can help raise funds for the next 30 years of land conservation in the valley.

Join us for luxury catered camp food (with alcoholic beverages for the adults), fun activities for the kids like paddleboard lessons, a scavenger hunt, lawn games, sing-a-longs around the campfire and toasty s’mores, followed by a movie under the stars and continental breakfast the following morning. Check out Camp Pollock, an 11-acre former Boy Scout camp and one of the best kept secrets along the American River. Your sponsorship will support the Conservancy’s efforts to provide youth camping and outdoor classrooms, preserve beautiful oak woodlands, rare wetlands, local working farms and ranches, homes for wildlife, trails for hiking and native plant restorations. Attendees are typically local families with young children.
Enjoy stacks of fluffy pancakes, hot off the grill with eggs, bacon, fresh fruit, and a steaming cup of coffee at the beautiful 4,500-acre Deer Creek Hills Preserve. Meet and mingle over a hearty breakfast in nature, surrounded by colorful rolling foothills, mature oaks, grazing cattle and blooming wildflowers. Top off your visit with a hike, trail run, Docent-led tour, or guided equestrian ride through open country. This annual appreciation event is our way to say THANK YOU to our dedicated docents, volunteers and supporters. New supporters are welcome too! Each year, SVC Docents share their time and talents to lead more than 100 activities for 1,600 visitors. Our public programs simply would not exist without community donations and dedicated volunteers. Cowboy Breakfast is attended by outdoor enthusiasts, annual supporters, local business members, government officials, and both residents and travelers in the Sacramento/El Dorado/Amador County area.
Trail Run/Ride Program
Hit the trails for a run or ride over rolling foothills, under mature oaks, through grasslands and around ponds. Enjoy the fresh air, sunshine and sounds of birds as you get in shape in the great outdoors! Go at your own pace on one of three marked trails, or register for a docent-guided group tour. SVC’s mission is to protect open space, and we love connecting people to nature and ensuring there are always places to hike, ride, run, explore, volunteer, camp and enjoy natural landscapes close to home. Support our work and utilize these beautiful landscapes by hitting the trails at Deer Creek Hills. Each year, more than 4,000 visitors explore Deer Creek Hills through field trips, hikes, trail runs, educational tours, mountain biking, equestrian riding, yoga, birding, stargazing, and more. Sponsors can select a specific outing type or season to maximize recognition benefits among visitors.
Keep our nature preserves clean, healthy, and safe for both visitors and wildlife. Volunteer service projects take place on two Saturdays per month at Camp Pollock, and twice per year at Deer Creek Hills Preserve (or on a dire-needs basis, and as sponsorships are received). Tasks include trail building, maintenance, fence repairing, weed eradication, and general clean-up projects. Volunteers are often students, local business groups, docents, and caring individuals from the community. Sponsorships directly help open space, and provide the tools, snacks and training for our amazing volunteer crews.
Show someone you care by dedicating a picnic table in their honor. Or, sponsor a table on behalf of your family, company, or club. Your honorary table will be placed in a beautiful outdoor setting at Camp Pollock or Deer Creek Hills Preserve and provide a resting/picnicking location for thousands of visitors. Tables are made from 3000 milk jugs, recycled HDPE plastic, impervious to water, rot, and mold. Non-leach and safe for aquatic areas and maintenance-free. $1,800 includes a bronze plaque with up to four lines of text, tax, shipping and assembly.
