Back Country Land Trust (BCLT)


Name of Organization:

Back Country Land Trust

Type of Organization:

Back Country Land Trust (BCLT) is a non-profit community organization based in Alpine. We currently own and manage 4,000 acres of open-space conservation land in East County, including 230-acres of our locally famous Wright’s Field in Alpine.  As a small non-profit group we are always in need of volunteer support from community members and partner organizations for a variety of tasks.  Scheduling and number of hours for volunteers is flexible depending on which task is undertaken, what time of year, and availability of volunteer participants.  Work commitment could be as little as 5 hours, or as many as 40+ hours per year.  We are also available to host summer internships and/or students interested in independent study opportunities.
