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.

  • Funding for recreational trail and economic development projects
  • Create skills training and employment opportunities for local youth and adults
  • Enhance and maintain the trails and public lands of the Lost Sierra region
  • Facilitate collaboration within the Lost Sierra region to ensure limited resources go farther and projects are completed successfully
  • Create a public/private partnership that results in sustained and increased public funding for the Lost Sierra Route – A Trail for Everyone that all user groups will be able to enjoy
