Open Spaces, Wild Places showcases the scenic beauty of the natural and working lands of California’s Yuba and Bear River watersheds, and highlights the essential conservation work currently underway by the Bear Yuba Land Trust to save these places forever. Facing constant threat of development and subdivision, the Land Trust is working to protect this unique and special place, from the blue oak woodlands, upstream to the pine forests in the Sierra high country. Using tools like conservation and trail easements, Bear Yuba Land Trust is partnering with landowners and leading the way on preservation and stewardship of lands, restoration in the face of climate change, supporting our local food systems, and connecting our community to nature on our trails and preserves. Together we can protect our open spaces and wild places–forever. Visit to learn more and get involved.
