About the Claremont Wildlands Conservancy

Who We Are and What We Do

The Claremont Wildlands Conservancy is a non-profit land conservancy composed of local residents who are deeply concerned about preserving wild lands and the plants and animals they sustain. We are non-confrontational, non-partisan, and respectful of individual property rights. We are a grass-roots organization with extensive local support.

We believe that the health and vigor of our community and the integrity and wildness of our natural environment are closely linked. Beyond their extraordinary intrinsic value, the distinctiveness and variety of the animals, plants and landscape offer immeasurable emotional and physical enrichment to our lives. Their loss would impoverish us immensely.

We are committed to ensuring that our community continues to be enhanced and ennobled by the character and beauty of our wild lands. This is our contribution to the future.

Our Mission

The mission of the Claremont Wildlands Conservancy is to preserve the land, air, watershed, plant and wildlife resources of the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains in the greater Claremont area of northeastern Los Angeles County, as well as to advocate for the protection of important biotic habitats and for access to these natural areas for the enjoyment of current and future generations.

Our Strategy

Our plan is to foster voluntary partnerships with private landowners, public agencies, local government, developers, and other organizations to place land into permanent conservation, ensuring that the water quality, natural beauty and ecological diversity of our community are preserved for future generations.
