Our vision is that every person, young or old, can reap the benefits from natural spaces, farmland and historic vistas. No matter where you live or work, you can find a natural respite near you.
The Land Conservation and Advocacy Trust provides emergency funding and legal support to preserve open spaces, farm land, historic architecture, natural resources, and to promote smart-growth ideals that foster these land conservation values. We work closely with land trusts, other stewardship organizations, and on our own initiative so that we can act quickly when local resources are not available to preserve important land parcels.
We believe that conservation and preservation of natural and organic spaces is vital to the physical, emotional and spiritual health and well-being of individuals and communities and that the human condition and society depend on the ability of every individual to meaningfully and regularly interact with a living landscape. Land conservation, preservation and use of smart-growth principles are the most effective ways to provide this interaction and to ensure its longevity by safeguarding wildlife habitat, scenic views, wetlands, sensitive watershed parcels, forests, farm land, greenways, and other valuable open spaces from development and permanent loss.
We rely solely on your donations to fund emergent land preservation needs.
For your convenience, we gratefully accept donations through PayPal, Piryx (no account required) and Google Checkout.
