Our Team

The Board of Directors and staff of any
Non-profit organization is the lifeblood that
keeps everything going. 



Mr. Garrod has been a partner in owning and operating Bird Flat Ranch in Doyle for over thirty years. He has served our Lassen County farming and ranching community on the Honey Lake Resource Conservation Committee and most recently as their Chairman. The Trust’s work would benefit greatly from  his agricultural experience and insights, as well as his experience in Resource Conservation.

Jeff Fontana (Secretary)

Jeff is the public affairs officer for the Bureau of Land Management’s Northern California District which includes field offices in Susanville, Alturas, Cedarville, Redding, and Arcata.
    He considers himself fortunate to have a position with diverse challenges while being based in beautiful northeast California.  He holds a BA degree in journalism from the University of Nevada.   Jeff’s familiarity with the Lassen Land and Trails Trust stretches back to the organization’s beginnings.  As a journalist, he covered the events, including a plan to burn the Susanville Depot as a fire training exercise that led to formation of a citizen group to save the historic Depot.  That group evolved into LLTT. Jeff, his wife, Carol, and son, Christian, reside in Susanville
