The Diablo Trust was formed in 1993 by the Metzger Family, owners of the Flying M Ranch, and the Prosser Family, owners of the Bar T Bar Ranch, to create a collaborative process for developing ideas to assist ranches in the protection of open spaces and healthy habitats.  The trust comprises the two ranch properties and adjoining federal lands that occupy an area approximately as large as metropolitan Phoenix.  The trust operates in partnership with the federal government to "demonstrate innovative approaches to restore and maintain the natural processes that create and protect a healthy, unfragmented landscape to support a diverse flourishing community of human, plant and animal life in the Diablo Trust land area."
