Land & Water

As we protect lands, we must also protect the lakes, creeks, and watersheds that support both us and wildlife habitat.  The Land Trust is aimed at protecting water quality and the natural beauty of our waterways.

Our Impact: To date, the Land Trust has helped Napa County protect over 50 miles of waterways that provide everyday drinking water for Napa, St. Helena and Angwin, as well as recreation on the Napa River and Lake Berryessa.
