The power of land trusts

Land trusts across the country are saving land and harnessing the power of conservation to help make their communities stronger.

Nature needs your help.

The challenges facing our planet can seem too big for any one person: wildfires and extreme weather events, polluted air and water, rising seas, fractured communities and habitat loss for plants and animals. Supporting land trusts is one way you are making a difference for the land and people.

Take Action

If you love the land, there's a lot you can do.

Land is the key to a healthy and secure future. It provides pure drinking water, healthy food, clean air and places to reflect and recreate.
