In the spring of 1999, a handful of Yucaipa residents joined to form the Yucaipa Valley Conservancy (YVC). This group of enthusiasts realized early on that without appropriate protection, grassroots organization, and careful planning, Yucaipa would soon lose its natural charm and astonishing beauty like so many other cities in the Inland Empire.

The goal of YVC is, therefore, to preserve Yucaipa’s pristine natural environment as well as the area’s historical artifacts so that they can be enjoyed by the community and many generations of Yucaipians to come.

This website as created for the greater Yucaipa Valley, its citizens, visitors, and people passing through. You will find information about the vision, mission, and history of the YVC, projects that YVC has initiated, sponsored or participate, and if you would like to become a fellow steward of our local resources, we will show you how you can help and contribute so that Yucaipa maintains its status as the pearl of the inland empire.Enjoy!
