Legacy Land Trust Society
Our goal is to build a community that shares a commitment to conservation and stewardship of the land.
Ecologically sensitive land, wildlife habitat and corridors, agricultural land, and significant historical and archeological sites are all of importance to Legacy.
We offer resources and support to those who share our goal — and we invite you to join our efforts.
'Legacy - Rotary' Bluebird Trail
On Friday May 3 2019 Legacy Land Trust Society dedicated a bluebird trail with the help of Rotary volunteers and the community. This project was first considered by Legacy Land Trust Society as a way of creating habitat for migrating bluebirds in increasingly fragmented landscapes.
If you have a copy of Legacy's 2019 calendar you'll find this gorgeous photo by Barry Freeman featured for the month of June.
Barry is one of more than 20 photographers whose work appears in our calendar.
He writes: "Habitat for native yellow lady's slipper is disappearing. Found mostly between the road and the farm fence these days, their brief flowering in June is followed with camouflaged obscurity in the shade of tall grass for the rest of the summer. Conserving land gives opportunities for many species to survive."
In October 2017 a Conservation Easement was signed between Legacy Land Trust Society and Mountain View County to protect 644 acres of permanent wetlands and the surrounding grazing/woodlands.
