The Center for Natural Lands Management manages lands that have been permanently dedicated as natural resource conservation lands, complete with an endowment to provide for their permanent care. These lands have typically been turned over to them by a developer.
The Center is responsible both for the biological and economic management of those lands. Executive Director Sherry Teresa, who has over 19 years experience in evaluating and protecting biological resources, stated that "The Center has become a leader in science-based conservation land management." The Center is a nonprofit, tax-exempt organization which does not lobby for or against any causes.
The organization was formed in 1990, and currently manages 50,000 acres of land, 34,000 of which are in Southern California. They moved their headquarters from Sacramento to Fallbrook on May 1, 1998, and have satellite locations in Arcata, Sacramento, Santa Cruz, Kern, Riverside, Thousand Palms and Orange County.
The headquarters at 425 E. Alvarado, Suit H, is staffed by Administrative Director Brenda Pace and Office Manager Retha Hildreth, in addition to Executive Director Sherry Teresa. (760) 731-7790.
