Dedication Programs to Honor Loved Ones
The FLC has received hundreds of donations over the past 25 years in memory or in honor of loved ones. You'll see tags on trees and plaques on benches throughout the preserves and along downtown Fallbrook streets.
A memorial tile pathway winds its way through beautiful gardens at the Palomares House & Park. The cost to dedicate a tile is $300 and the proceeds help maintain the park and grounds. Tiles are 12" x12" and the inscription is limited to 100 characters. Contact us at the FLC office or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Donors are also encouraged to "re-adopt" dedicated trees in downtown Fallbrook, as the Save Our Forest Treescape Project relies on this special fund for maintenance expenses such as watering, pruning,
fertilizing, and general upkeep. See the SOF page for more info...
Please save your receipts and drop them off at or mail them to the Palomares House at your convenience. Major Market will donate a percentage back to the FLC from all current receipt totals.
AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon with the same products, prices, and shopping features as Amazon.com. The difference is that when you shop on AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products to the charitable organization of your choice. So please designate the Fallbrook Land Conservancy as your charity of choice for an easy way to support the FLC.

Howard Sansom wandered into a Save Our Forest booth on Ash Street right after a major planting on the Pico Promenade in 1997. He found his niche that day. He had found a way to serve his new community of Fallbrook doing what he loved.
Service was Howard’s life. He served in the United States Marine Corps, flying a long list of planes and helicopters. His plan for his life was written in his high school year book just as it played out. “I am planning to take some phase of reforestation or conservation after I have served time for Uncle Sam”. How ironic that day on Ash Street proved to be. It was a very lucky day for Save Our Forest.
Howard was a stable voice as a Fallbrook Land Conservancy committee member for Save Our Forest. He helped plan and execute the many tree plantings that brought over 2,650 trees to our community as well as the two year Environmental Education program that has restored native plants growth to Fallbrook Land Conservancy’s Preserves. Howard and his team at the nursery brought the plants along to be ready for the planting the second year. His work terracing a slope to create levels to house thousands of plant and trees was monumental. There have been as many as 5,000 in his care. He was at the “patch” as he called it, three days a week. He and his helpers Jody Williams and Gary Beeler were often found in the morning sitting on their makeshift terrace that overlooked the bottom part of the nursery drinking coffee before beginning their work.
Howard also organized the SOF Adopt-A-Road project through San Diego County more than 15 years ago. He originally brought in the River Watch Group to partner with us adopting Old 395 from 76 to E. Mission. His monthly program is ongoing today exceeding the basic requirement of being done quarterly.
His devotion to his work came to be a bulwark of the very being of Save Our Forest. His presence in our community will have a lasting effect.
