The Sierra Nevada Conservancy would provide funding for the Siskiyou Land Trust to purchase the 320-acre Luginbuhl Ranch located near the community of Mt. Shasta in Siskiyou County, adjacent to lands managed by the Shasta-Trinity National Forest. The property is comprised of mixed conifer forest, mountain meadows, fens, springs, and streams, which provide source water to the Upper Sacramento River. The property is currently managed for agricultural and forestry values. The long-term intent of this project is for Siskiyou Land Trust to sustainably manage the property for agricultural and forestry values while protecting water sources and sensitive habitats, maintaining a resilient forest ecosystem that retains carbon, buffers the Upper Sacramento River from drought risks, and reduces wildfire risks to surrounding forests and communities. The SNC project would include completion of all due diligence to purchase the property for conservation, an environmental site assessment, cultural surveys, development of a management plan, transaction document development, and purchase of the property.
