I’ve been critical of nonprofits that don’t pull their weight, but the Arroyos & Foothills Conservancy is the organization that validates the role of nonprofits in the land acquisition scheme of things. More nonprofits like AFC and less government -- that would be a good thing."
--Joe Edmiston, Executive Director, Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy

The Arroyos & Foothills Conservancy preserves land and restores habitat in and around the San Gabriel and Crescenta Valleys, thereby protecting natural areas for birds and wildlife and providing access and educational experiences for the community. We work with urgency to save these precious places before they are gone.

The great majority of our organizational funding comes from members of the local community. The community's support also enables us to seek major contributions from government agencies and private foundations for major projects, including land acquisitions.

We also accept gifts in acknowledgement of special occasions, such as weddings, or in memory of the dearly departed.  A gift to AFC as a beneficiary of your estate or retirement plan enables you to support our mission of preserving land for future generations.

AFC is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation. Donations are tax-deductible.
