Protecting nature for health and wellness
Land trusts work to ensure that every person can access parks, trails, gardens and other green spaces for their mental and physical health and general well-being.
Protecting our lands and waters is a public health issue. When we save nature, we save ourselves.
Land trusts have already conserved 61 million acres of private land across the nation — more than all of the national parks combined. Help us conserve another 60 million acres by the end of the decade.
Together, let’s keep Gaining Ground.
Efforts by land trusts to permanently protect wildlife habitat, scenic, agricultural and other green spaces across the country result in more places where people can connect with nature to benefit their physical and mental health.
Together, we are gaining ground.
Learn how land trusts across the country are gaining ground.
Together, we can conserve, restore and use nature sustainably, but only through transformative change. Making these changes can seem too big for any one person, however, supporting land trusts is an easy and tangible way to have a positive impact for the land. Join us in ensuring that all people have access to places that improve our health and quality of life while also benefiting the planet we all share.Make a lasting impact
