Advance your mission with a Land Trust Alliance membership. Our member benefits will save you time and money, helping you invest more in your organization.
Land trusts came together to form the Land Trust Alliance in 1982 to do the things that no one organization can do on its own.
Things like leading nationwide advocacy. Setting standards to ensure land trust excellence and earn the public’s trust. Providing insurance for easement defense. We also empower land conservation organizations to do more as their people become more skilled, connected and inspired. We train thousands of people every year. We develop leaders and catalyze partnerships. We share success stories and equip land trusts for accreditation. How do you want to grow your organization?
