Why we give: Sally & Mike Yost
#1 Reason? Tangible results and beautiful lands conserved
With over 1,000 members, there are as many reasons to support the Land Trust as there are members. This week, we chat with Mike and Sally Yost of Taylorsville.

Mike and Sally Yost of Taylorsville exemplify the many ways that our members give of their time, treasure, and talent. We are grateful to them, and to YOU!

Mike and Sally helped found the Feather River Land Trust in 2000. And from making sure cows had water on the Maddalena Ranch, to leading the Board of Directors, to designing FRLT's logo, to Monthly Giving, they have been giving of their time, money, and talents ever since. Why? 

I give to the Land Trust because it's a local organization that does land conservation that's tangible--a person can see these properties that our giving has helped conserve. It's very rewarding. 

I also give because of the quality of the director, staff, and structure of the organization. And we keep going. Now we are nationally accredited--that puts FRLT in a new category of self-evaluation and awareness of how we do business. When I pay my bills each month, the Land Trust comes first.

The organization itself is so healthy and has been doing such 
good work through the yea rs. You know that the money you contribute is going to a good cause and is going to be spent on conserving land.

Catalysts in the Effort To Save Olsen Barn
Members like the Yosts contributed creatively to make it happen

Most recently, Mike and Sally found great satisfaction--and new friends--by rolling up their sleeves to help save the Olsen Barn and meadow.

They got creative and gave in many ways to make it happen (and so did more than 500 of you. Thank you!). Read more...

And in return? The satisfaction of knowing they (and you!) helped conserve a beautiful property for the community and wildlife for generations to come.

An unexpected benefit: Because so many of you got involved, they got to meet lots of interesting people. Sally says, "I've made new friends through this effort that I know will continue through my life."

Want to get more involved?  Read Sally & Mike's story. There are many ways to make a difference. And like the Yosts, you might be surprised by what you gain in return.
