Environmental Quality Protection, Beautification
Transition Habitat Conservancy protects transition zone and wildlife corridor ecosystems and their scenic, agricultural, and cultural resource values in the West Mojave Desert. We provide education about the fragile and inspirational nature of our desert plants, animals, and ecosystems to connect people to nature.
Transition Habitat Conservancy is a nationally accredited land trust that focuses on land acquisitions and habitat stewardship in the West Mojave Desert. With the support of the local community, a dedicated board and staff, and successful partnerships with local, state, and federal agencies, THC has acquired nearly 7,000 acres of important habitat, and we have helped improve thousands of additional acres in the Southern California Desert. We are authorized by the State of California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) to hold mitigation lands and endowments; we have a cooperative agreement with the Bureau of Land Management for a hydrologic survey of all springs and seeps in the California Desert District and a BLM assistance agreement to help manage ongoing restoration efforts; and we have two approved Conceptual Area Protection Plans with the California Wildlife Conservation Board.

GuideStar worked with BoardSource, the national leader in nonprofit board leadership and governance, to create this section, which enables organizations and donors to transparently share information about essential board leadership practices.SOURCE: Self-reported by organization
Does the board conduct a formal orientation for new board members and require all board members to sign a written agreement regarding their roles, responsibilities, and expectations?
Has the board conducted a formal, written assessment of the chief executive within the past year?
Have the board and senior staff reviewed the conflict-of-interest policy and completed and signed disclosure statements in the past year?
Does the board ensure an inclusive board member recruitment process that results in diversity of thought and leadership?
Has the board conducted a formal, written self-assessment of its performance within the past three years?
In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).SOURCE: Self-reported by organization
