Over the last 100 years, individuals across the country have formed private nonprofit organizations known as "land trusts," each dedicated to acquiring and protecting land and natural resources for the public good. Effectively protecting land from ever-increasing development pressures takes a local infrastructure of land trusts working in every corner of the country, strengthened by the national leadership of the Land Trust Alliance.Since 1982, the Land Trust Alliance has helped grow the land trust community from 300 isolated organizations to a network of nearly 1,700 groups working to save our country''s special natural places--forests, parks, working farms and ranches, riverbanks, landscapes, and habitat. These are places that are critical to the quality of the air we breathe and the food and water we consume, and they are places that have enriched human lives through all generations.Because of the Land Trust Alliance''s work:* More landowners choose to protect their land* Conservation leaders are more effective at saving land* Strong nonprofits and legal systems protect land in perpetuity
Programs: The Land Trust Alliance works to secure public policies on a national scale that support land trusts' efforts and their conservation goals. These include federal tax incentives for conservation and strong federal funding for land conservation. The Alliance helps land conservation organizations working in communities all across our country develop, leverage, and coordinate their communications to build broad support for land conservation among the general public and among policy makers.
