Your support, use of the park, and participation in our events enables us to meet our conservation goals while building an exceptional and sustainable equestrian facility.

Good Neighbors lending a helping hand

Stewardship & Sustainability

 

CEPF is very passionate about helping to preserve this land for equine use, as well as, the landowners’ goal to protect the natural habitat and any sensitive species located here.

 

Camelot Equestrian Park Foundation is a Conservation Partner to the Equestrian Land Conservation Resource (ELCR). ELCR was founded with the belief that the loss of open land is a great and urgent threat to the future of equestrian activities throughout this country, and that there is a serious need to take action to preserve land for equestrian use.

 

Camelot Farms voluntarily limits the use of the land to equestrian activities and to the conservation of open grassland. It is the landowners’ dream to keep these 1,600 acres open and available to equine enthusiasts. They preserve this natural grassland by conducting site sensitive grazing practices, native grass production, and harvesting.

 

Grassland farming practices and equestrian activities naturally complement one another. Camelot Farms and the Equestrian Park are natural, logical, and sensitive uses of this land.

 

Horsemen were among the original conservationists in this country. We have a long tradition of respect for the environment. It is after all, the workplace from which we operate. Continuing the tradition, Camelot Equestrian Park is taking a proactive approach to conservation and to the design of a sustainable equine facility.

 

An enlightened horse facility must be good stewards of the environment. Stewardship means more than taking care of land and water resources. It also means being good neighbors to the surrounding communities. Keeping a clean facility, minimizing dust and insects, and managing waste are crucial to being good neighbors. For example; composting of manure decreases the volume of waste and turns the waste into a valuable product that can be used throughout the farm and park.

Being a good neighbor also means helping our neighbors when they are truly in need. Working with North Valley Animal Disaster Group (NVADG) and Butte County Camelot is a large animal disaster rescue site. In the event of disaster evacuation you may bring your animals to Camelot for safe keeping. If you would like to stay close to your animals, we also have space for evacuated people with self-contained RVs in the campground.

North Valley Animal Disaster Group (NVADG), this amazing group of volunteers are the first responders when you need to evacuate your large animals in the event of an emergency.
