(on this map, the Sierra Valley is in the upper left.
The pink and dark green shading on this map shows land saved by land trusts and by the private land owners. The light green and yellow shadingshows federal lands; the blue shading is State land.)

By July, 2004, using both conservation easements and outright purchase, the Feather River Land Trust has protected over 27,000 acres in the Feather River region. About 90% of these 27,000 acres consist of working cattle ranches. The properties we've protected include:

--The 1,030-acre Matley Ranch along Last Chance Creek
--The 1,360-acre Balderston Ranch (formerly known as the Lombardi Ranch) in Sierra Valley --The 575-acre Maddalena Property in Sierra Valley
