Currently we are seeking input from the community on other important resources and/or areas that require protection. If you would like additional information on any of our projects, or would like to provide input or hold a meeting in your community, please contact us.
Since 2006 MLLT has been working with the Stewardship Council on plans to help PG&E divest itself of over 140,000 acres of watershed land in California. In 2014 MLLT acquired a Conservation Easement on the 244 acre Kennedy Meadows property, and in 2015 acquired 515 acres of Middle Fork Stanislaus River frontage in Tuolumne County. In 2017 MLLT will be closing on another 460 acre Conservation Easement at Lyons Reservoir.
Mokelumne River Watershed Protection,
Amador, Alpine and Calaveras County
In 2015 MLLT secured an 899 acre Conservation Easement at Bear River Reservoir. We are currently working to protect an additional 1,400 acres at Blue Lakes in Alpine County, 1,100 acres at Doaks Ridge on the Mokelumne, and an additional 2,300 acres of river frontage along various reaches of the Mokelumne including Tiger Creek, Tabeaud Reservoir, and the Electra Powerhouse. All of these projects will enhance the natural environment as well as ensure that public use is honored and improved.
Long Gulch Watershed Assessment
In 2016 MLLT received a grant from the Sierra Nevada Conservancy to complete a Watershed Assessment and Management Plan at our recently acquired Land Gulch Ranch. This property is adjacent to the Pine Mountain Lake neighborhood and will focus on recreational opportunities as well as the watershed and Great Gray Owl preservation. The components of the Plan will be a Timber Management Plan, Great Gray Owl Study, Recreation Plan, and Watershed Assessment. We will be holding a series of public meetings in January to share our plan and gather input from the community so that we can address the public’s needs in our plan.
