Land trusts are nonprofit entities that acquire and manage land for conservation purposes. Sometimes these are landscape-level projects, attempting to preserve or re-establish corridors for wildlife and biodiversity.
Sometimes they exist to conserve what little is left of natural lands in an urban area. Some work cooperatively with water management districts and other state or federal agencies.
Others retain title to the land and act as stewards, managing for habitat restoration and opening up passive recreational use, typically footpaths or paddling routes.
Lands listed in this section of the website are owned and/or managed by nonprofit land trusts and permit public access for outdoor recreation.
