Parcels Protected by Acquisition or Conservation Easement

Save Mount Diablo holds a variable number of properties as we work to place them with a park agency or under the permanent protection of a conservation easement.

While we own these properties, we steward them to improve conditions and protect their most sensitive areas. Our amazing stewardship staff and volunteers usually begin by cleaning up properties, removing trash or old ranching materials, sometimes even demolishing vacant houses. We encourage research on our properties, offer guided hikes, conduct conservation grazing where appropriate, implement habitat restoration projects and work with neighbors to care for roads, fences and gates.

Learn more about how Save Mount Diablo preserves, defends and restores land through Acquisition, Land Use Planning Advocacy and Stewardship to fulfill our time-sensitive land conservation mission.
