Coming together to save what we love

Save Mount Diablo shares

October 2019

Save Mount Diablo's mission is to preserve, protect, and restore the natural lands on and around Mount Diablo for wildlife and people to enjoy. Their Facebook page is helping people connect the dots to the conservation work they do, climate change, and climate action.

They've been posting about youth taking action and why. Your local land trust can bring people along on this journey, too. 


Farmers ‘understand that the climate is changing and we have to adapt’

November 2019

Land trusts can join the effort to find funding for farmers to help them adapt and slow down climate change via state or federal programs. 

Fred Yoder, a fourth-generation Ohio farmer, has served on President Trump’s agriculture committee and chairs the North American Climate Smart Agriculture Alliance. He raises corn, soybeans, and wheat on about 1,500 acres, and has a seed and consulting business called Yoder Ag Services. Although the climate conversation is divisive in farm country, more farmers are talking about ways to address the issue.
