Mahonia Land Trust Conservancy (MLTC) is a 67 acre property in unincorporated Oregon City, Oregon. Over 50 acres are forested in various stages of second growth, and the remainder of the property is agricultural lands: pasture, orchards, and row crops.
The property is held in perpetuity as green space, serving to promote ecological diversity, preserve the common heritage of earth, and act as a living classroom for visitors and residents.
The land supports two houses, the residents of which serve as land stewards, utilizing the agricultural lands to produce organic produce for themselves and their larger community.
Want to engage deeper with MLTC? Walk the trails regularly, bird watch, or observe native plants in the woods. Come volunteer at our work parties, help out on the farms, join in at a meeting and potluck, and share your skills by participating in our community!
