Mission

Founded in 1993, Sustainable Conservation helps California thrive by uniting people to solve the toughest challenges facing our land, air, and water. Every day, we bring together business, landowners, and government to steward the resources that we all depend on in ways that make economic sense. Because we know that common ground is California's most important resource.

Our work focuses on supporting landowners to restore California's lands and water, partnering with farmers to grow a vibrant future, and engaging business to solve environmental challenges.

Sustainable Conservation's impact has been recognized by a variety of national and regional media, including the Today show, National Public Radio, USA Today, the Los Angeles Times, San Francisco Chronicle, and many others. Sustainable Conservation has received numerous awards for our enduring commitment to a healthy environment and thriving economy, including the Governor's Environmental and Economic Leadership Award.
