LTSCV is committed to protecting, promoting, and enhancing the natural habitats of fish, wildlife, plants or similar ecosystems, and preserving land for agriculture, recreation, education, historical preservation, or open space.
In 1998, a group of citizens formed the Land Trust for Santa Clara County, a 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation that changed its name to the Silicon Valley Land Conservancy in 2005 and finally to the Land Trust of Santa Clara Valley (LTSCV) in 2017. LTSCV has acquired, maintained, and preserved over 1,400 acres of natural habitat and agricultural land in Santa Clara County thanks to frequent collaboration with our partners at local conservation agencies and organizations.
Habitat for threatened and endangered species. LTSCV owns over 200 acres of serpentine grasslands where these species thrive alongside native wildflowers.
