About This Event

Join us for Land Trust Alliance Advocacy Days! We invite the staff, board members and volunteers of Alliance member land trusts to participate in our annual advocacy event to make a significant difference in land conservation.

As part of Advocacy Days, you'll have the opportunity to:

  • Take part in our annual issue briefing and first timers' advocacy training.

  • Educate the 118th Congress about the important work of the land trust community.

  • Visit our debrief room to get answers to your questions, share information about your meetings and network with your peers.

  • Hear remarks from key Capitol Hill figures.

  • Participate in meetings with your members of Congress.


The generous support of our sponsors allows land trusts to continue to advocate for the special places we need and love in our communities. A range of sponsorship opportunities are available — and sponsorship is a great way to increase your visibility and connect with a new audience. Contact Robert Schwartz for more information on sponsorship.
