Mountain Area Preservation (MAP)
Founded in 1987 by local Truckee residents, Mountain Area Preservation works to assure that critical land use decisions in the Greater Truckee region support and facilitate the preservation of the area’s unique character and are in balance with protecting our spectacular mountain landscapes. The organization’s strength derives from its broad-based membership, skilled board of directors and commitment to finding creative solutions to environmental threats. We work with property owners, developers, residents, local governments, fellow organizations and decision-makers to achieve our goals. In the organization’s 20-plus year history, protecting sensitive lands in the Martis Valley is one of many conservation accomplishments that the organization has achieved which collectively assure the conservation values, recreation opportunities and historic character of the Truckee-Tahoe region will be preserved for future generations.
