More than 1600 local and regional land trusts across America are helping private landowners and municipalities build a green infrastructure of conserved lands that will support thriving natural and human communities. The majority of these publicly supported land trusts focus on open space and agricultural lands conservation, but a significant number also engage in natural areas protection. The Land Trust Alliance, the national coordinating body and voice of the land trust community, is an invaluable resource for individuals wanting information about land conservation. Visit to find a land trust in your area.
