Bear Yuba Land Trust exists to protect and defend the working and natural lands of the Bear and Yuba River Watersheds and to empower healthy, resilient communities through nature access and education.

BYLT ​is a non-profit, community-supported organization that works to promote voluntary conservation of the region’s natural, historical and agricultural legacy. With community support, the Land Trust provides a lasting community heritage by protecting and enhancing meadows, watersheds, forests, farms and ranches, trails and parks.

Since 1990, Bear Yuba Land Trust has been a conservation leader in our region, saving more than 15,000 acres of Sierra Nevada and foothill forests, oak woodlands, meadows, riparian habitat, farms and ranches. Our professional trails team has worked with community volunteers to build and maintain more than 45 miles of local trails. Each year BYLT fills a recreation gap by encouraging hundreds of people to get outdoors and enjoy nature by providing numerous opportunities to do so with the highest quality adventure and learning programs.

Description: From McCourtney Road, turn left onto Auburn Road (opposite Gate 3 of the Fairgrounds), drive 6/10 of a mile and watch on the left side for a driveway with a big iron gate (if you see a pond on your right, you've gone too far). Pass through the gate and take the next right (sharp turn). At the end of that tree-lined road, turn left and soon you'll see a building with our sign on the front.
