Big Sur Land Trust


Big Sur Land Trust inspires love of land across generations, conservation of our unique Monterey County landscapes, and access to outdoor experiences for all.

The Big Idea

More than ever before, people turned to nature to help provide peace and perspective during the challenges of the pandemic. Big Sur Land Trust’s mission is to connect everyone to the breathtaking natural lands that surround us on the Central Coast. This nonprofit’s Big Idea is to enable even more people to access and enjoy properties like Toro Park or San Carlos Beach, places the trust has helped transfer to public access. Offering hiking trails, youth programs and community events helps bring more people to green spaces in our communities.

“El estar en las áreas que Big Sur Land Trust cuida me invita a respirar y a reconectar internamente y con mi familia. Estando afuera uno se acuerda que uno es todo y que también es poco en este planeta.” “Being in land cared for by Big Sur Land Trust invites me to breathe and reconnect within myself and with my family. Every time I am there, I get reminded that I am everything but that I am also a very small part of this planet.”

- Carisma Morfin
