How you benefit from land conservation
Land Trusts Help Your Community
Across the country, local citizens and communities have joined together to save the places they cherish by establishing land trusts. These non-profit, community-based conservation organizations acquire and protect land for the public good. Strong land trusts provide local communities with effective champions and long-term caretakers of their critical land resources.
Land trusts help preserve land for future generations, protect our food and water supply, provide wildlife habitat, and strengthen communities. The nation's 1,700 + land trusts work with communities to acquire and manage land for the purpose of permanent conservation and then steward the land for public benefit. The land trusts are on the front lines with their local communities to help them save America's land heritage.
