Bennett Valley Conservancy Fund

Announcing the Bennett Valley Conservancy Fund:


In 2023 the BVCA created the Conservancy Fund to provide financial resources to protect Bennett Valley from commercial developments that violate our Bennett Valley Area Plan (BVAP). The BVAP was approved by the board of supervisors in 1979. It is the result of residents who are passionate about preserving our rural and peaceful community, our flora and fauna, wildlife corridors, and scarce water resources. The BVCA is committed to preserving the Bennett Valley we all know and love.


Today the County is pushing to attract and permit unsightly commercial and retail cannabis operations in Bennett Valley, which are blatant violations of our BVAP. The commercial and industrial developments masquerade as “farming.” The BVCA opposes commercial development from changing Bennett Valley forever.


Your donation to the Conservancy Fund provides financial resources to hire lawyers and expert consultants to resist the County’s misguided policies.
