CHICO, Calif. - A regional land trust designed to protect and conserve agricultural lands and open spaces from development is getting a big financial boost.

Last year, Action News Now Morning Anchor Julia Yarbough highlighted some of the work the Northern California Regional Land Trust takes on.

The organization recently purchased thousands of acres of ranch property which sits along the Butte-Tehama County line.
The land trust is now one of a handful of such conservation agencies throughout California receiving funding.

The California Strategic Growth Council is awarding 57-million dollars, statewide, for conservation efforts of agricultural land. The goal is to promote infill development projects and protect open spaces from further development.

The Northern California Regional Land Trust is slated to receive roughly 2.2 million dollars in funding.

Projects in 19 different California counties will be funded, which will allow for the protection of more than 20-thousand acres.
