LANDERS MEADOW

PROTECTED: A Fragile, Wet Meadow in the Southern Sierra

Completed Projects Landers Meadow

With your support, Landers Meadow was successfully acquired by the PCTA in 2016, permanently protecting this unique and beautiful land along the Pacific Crest Trail.

The southern Sierra Nevada section of the PCT takes hikers and horseback riders through scenic mountains and desert wilderness. This unique area of the PCT in Kern County includes rare and endangered meadows surrounded by pinyon, juniper and ponderosa pine forests.

Given just a few months to raise $550,000, generous donors and members met the goal, enabling the PCTA to purchase the land—contributing to the PCTA’s goal to permanently protect the entire PCT corridor, and ensuring the trail will retain its iconic wilderness character for generations to come.

The PCTA intends to own and manage the property until we can transfer it to the adjacent Sequoia National Forest to be managed for public recreation and access, scenic enjoyment along the PCT, wildlife habitat protection, and watershed resilience.
