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.

What is Advocacy Days?

The mission of our annual Advocacy Days is to provide land trust leaders with advocacy training and facilitate their relationships with key legislators to help build the political influence of the land trust community. The Land Trust Alliance advises Congress on important land trust issues in a way that no one land trust could do by itself — but to truly motivate elected officials, we need them to hear your stories about conserving our nation’s land and waters. Your participation is as important as it is truly valuable.

Members of Congress must receive a clear message that our community is a powerful coalition — and land conservation is an important national and local issue.


The deadline to reserve discounted accommodations at the Hilton Garden Inn has passed.  If you still require lodging, please use your favorite online search engine or email Patty Tipson with any questions.


Travel stipends are available, with a focus on key districts and first-time participants.



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.

Participants in Land Trust Alliance events should review and agree to the Alliance Code of Conduct.
