The Southeast encompasses landscapes as richly diverse as its people and culture — coastlines and marshes, islands and bayous, rivers and farmland, mountains and gorges. Nearly 100 land trusts within 10 states and two territories are dedicated to protecting these special places that provide wildlife habitats, fertile farm country, working forests, historic and cultural sites, biodiversity hotspots and exceptional scenic beauty.
