What We Offer
2014 PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE
As I write my last presidential article for Central Arizona Land Trust (aka CALT) it is a bitter sweet experience. Betty and I are moving back to California to semi-retire on a 6,500 acre cattle ranch 12 miles north of Chico. We both have experienced living there in the past and we’ll reside in a small cabin on Pine Creek at the base of the Sierra Nevada foothills. Continue...
The 2014 Farm Bill, signed into law by President Obama on February 7, provides more than $1 billion for conservation, exceeding all other federal sources of conservation funding. This bill will keep working farms and ranches in family hands, helping to restore and maintain our ways of life.

On July 17, the House voted on a bipartisan vote of 277-130 to make the conservation tax incentive permanent! This is a huge step forward for land conservation and the land trust community. Next, the measure goes to the Senate for a vote.
We need your help in getting this enacted into law. Ask your senator to join Orrin Hatch (R-UT) and 25 of his colleagues as co-sponsors of the Rural Heritage Conservation Extension Act, S. 526.

GET READY FOR THE 3RD ANNUAL 50 MILE FEAST!
The chef is hired, the menu is being crafted, and the producers are planting and feeding. Our annual fund-raiser has been a huge success and we are looking forward to an even better event this year.
The 50 Mile Feast has been so successful that we have outgrown the kitchen at Chino Valley Farms! We are grateful that the Girl Scouts-Arizona Cactus-Pine Council has offered to support our efforts and the 50 Mile Feast will be held at Camp Willow Springs on Thumb Butte in Prescott. It is a lovely venue, with plenty of parking, open space and covered areas.
Tickets may be obtained for $100 each or $750 for a table of eight. Call the CALT office at 928-445-7790 of visit the website at www.centralazlandtrust.org.
