Land and people
Keeping the link alive
Together, we care for land and people.
Your support of this important work throughout the year, ultimately accomplishes this mission. Not only is land protected, forever, it can be shared with the community for all to enjoy. People can find peace, exercise their bodies, and renew their spirits in nature. We trust that healthy land leads to healthy and happy people!
Sometimes, before young people can get out on the land, they may need help getting on their feet. This holiday season, Nicole Braddock, Solano Land Trust’s executive director, gave staff and board the chance to donate
gifts to local foster kids who often fall through the cracks when they age out of the foster-care system at eighteen. We are proud to report that a small mountain of gifts, along with a jar of cash for gift cards, filled the couch in Nicole’s office in one day. The gifts and money were distributed by Heart 2 Heart Solano Youth Services, a program dedicated to supporting these teens.
Together, we provide opportunities for adults and kids alike to get outside in nature’s classroom. One way we do that is by offering a monthly kids' hike. Lucky for families, the next one is on Friday, January 4, when most kids are still out of school. In fact, Di Holokahi, our new engagement assistant, is having her daughter’s birthday party on the hike with some of her friends. Great idea, Di!
Thanks for all you do to support land and people of all ages.
