There are many ways you can make a difference for the land and for your community.
After years of hard work and persistence by the Land Trust Alliance, our land trust members and our allies on Capitol Hill — and in the face of well-resourced opposition — Congress finally passed the Charitable Conservation Easement Program Integrity Act as part of its year-end “omnibus” spending bill.
Land trusts across the country provide programs and activities to get people outside, volunteer and learn about the land.
Your unique skills may also be invaluable to a land trust! Volunteering is a fun and rewarding way to meet new people, visit beautiful places and give back to your community.
Across the country, land trusts have conserved 9,761 miles of trails, including 997 universal access trails. You and your family can get outside for walks, hikes, biking and birding.
Is your family looking for something fun to do outdoors? Land trusts across the nation have events and activities for all ages so your entire family can get outside!
Conserving private land is the key to addressing society’s most challenging issues — from habitat loss and the climate crisis to social inequities and rising health problems.
It strengthens local communities and is our nation’s best and perhaps only hope for securing the critical public benefits provided by natural and working lands, such as clean water and air, habitat for plants and animals and healthy, local food.
With your support, we can all have better lives, stronger communities and a healthier planet by making sure that beautiful, open spaces stay beautiful and open.
