Restatement of Commitment to Preservation and Conservation of Kings River Lands
Supporters of El Río Reyes Conservation Trust’s opposition to development along the Kings River should know that this organization will remain a vocal force in that effort. The Trust has a clear focus on conserving natural resources by encouraging wise land-use planning, and discouraging those activities that produce permanent degradation of environmental quality. The Trust will continue to encourage elected officials to consider biological values, as well as economic and social demands, when deciding whether to allow land conversion to occur.
El Río Reyes Conservation Trust respects the ability of landowners and family farmers to be good stewards of the land, as they practice sustainable agriculture. It recognizes that human and environmental interests are served best when the land is managed for permanent productivity of its many resources, rather than eliminating all future use in order to obtain just one component.
The Trust wishes to thank all of its supporters for their financial donations, guidance and encouragement in recent months. The accomplishments of El Río Reyes Conservation Trust in reducing the impact of projects along the Kings River are due to a collective effort of you and other people who are taking action to help preserve and conserve the Kings River.
