SOS Glenshire’s mission is to protect open space in Eastern Truckee, and ensure that new developments respect the Town of Truckee’s general plan, the State of California’s environmental laws, and the local wildlife and waterways that make this region so many of us are proud to call home.
We are an all-volunteer organization made up of individuals who care about preserving our
community’s special character as well as protecting the plants and animals we share this space with.
After thirty-four years of land use controversy, private property owners and conservationists strike a deal to buy 290 acres at the Eastern edge of Truckee, known as Canyon Springs.
Our community has a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to BUY Canyon Springs and create permanently protected open space, once and for all, AND WE NEED YOUR HELP!
Truckee Donner Land Trust, Mountain Area Preservation, the Martis Fund, and SOS Glenshire are teaming up to preserve this 290-acre property forever – but we need to raise 11.6 million by December 15th to succeed in our conservation efforts!
With a 6 million grant from the Martis Fund and 3.9 million in conservation funds from MAP and Truckee Donner Land Trust, we are kicking off our capital campaign at 9.9 million dollars! We need to raise an additional 1.7 million by December 15th to be successful in conserving Canyon Springs in perpetuity.
