The mission of the Land Trust of Santa Clara Valley is to preserve agriculture, other working lands and open space in Santa Clara County and adjacent areas.
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.
