This was an eye opener for both the kids and the parents. Most of the parents were not aware that there were land preserves open to the public. For the kids, it learning experience, such as simply walking down a trail and noticing all the plants, trees, insects, etc along the trail. Legacy Land Trust made this possible.

Recently I was with my 7th grade students to a field trip in Sheldon Lake, (Houston, TX) where we have a great learning hands on experience. I took 140 kids in two trips to the park, staff, volunteers and park personnel were absolutely fantastic. Initiatives like this definetly help in educating and growing young scientists.

LLT's primary goals are the preservation of Houston area watersheds and the education of area youth as to why preserving those green spaces is important to the long term health of the larger community.

I first learned about Legacy Land Trust and became a member in 2005, the same year I become alarmed by the numbers of dead woodland animals on the roads and railroad tracks in my neighborhood, animals killed as they fled heavily wooded tracts being clear-cut for development. It soon became clear-cut to me that the natural lands in my area were disappearing, and I found that Legacy Land Trust's mission of preserving ecologically valuable land by creating conservation easements jelled with my own notions about land use. Currently I serve as secretary on the board of directors. My "Legacy" ensures that over 8,000 acres in the Houston region will remain undeveloped for generations to come. As a natural outgrowth of its mission, Legacy now provides ecological education for children, an invaluable resource for area school districts which are under pressure to increase science education but have been denied the funding to do so. Because I believe in the need and urgency of Legacy Land Trust's missions and am aware that funding is scarce, I gladly donate my time and my money.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Legacy Land Trust preserves accessible by the public for nature observation and study, birdwatching, bicycling, hiking, horseback riding, and paddling.
