Welcome to the Vision Circle!

Your donation creates an everlasting impact by supporting SBTS’s legacy project, Connected Communities, that will connect 15 rural mountain towns with the new 300+ mile Lost Sierra Route.

Through your three-year recurring donation, of the amount you select above, each year, we will create new jobs and support a sustainable recreation-based economy in Plumas, Sierra, Lassen and Butte Counties. We can accept donations via credit card, check and from foundations, trusts, employee match contributions and other options. If not paying by credit card, email us at so we can connect with you.
