In 1993, two Arizona ranch families, the Prossers of the Bar T Bar Ranch and the Metzgers of the Flying M Ranch, both located in Northern Arizona, initiated a land stewardship collaboration called the Diablo Trust. The idea was to develop a collaborative process that included the wide and disparate views and agendas from ranchers, state and federal agencies, wildlife enthusiasts, academics and environmentalists. The Trust was named after th" Diablo Canyon that separates the two ranches, and was formed to promote the social, biological and economic sustainability of federal, state and private lands by engaging in a collaborative stewardship process in harmony with the natural environment and broader community. Their mission is to ensure the long-term economic, social and ecological sustainability of the Diablo Trust land area by providing a forum for active community participation in a collaborative land stewardship process.
