John Muir Land Trust manages a stunning array of 13 properties, representing 3,100 acres of classic East Bay hills, ranches, streams and shoreline. Collectively these places offer spectacular views; multi-use trails for walking, hiking, cycling, horses and dogs; productive agriculture; protected drinking water; clean air; and permanently preserved habitat for a wide variety of threatened and endangered plants and animals. The East Bay residents benefit from having nearby access to these magnificent open spaces, providing both recreational and educational opportunities that contribute to an enhanced quality of life.
