2015 National Land Trust Census Results Released
The Land Trust Alliance's National Land Trust Census is the nation’s most comprehensive data source for land protected by private nonprofit organizations in the United States. The Census is both a benchmark and a snapshot of the land trust movement and its growth. The Alliance has reported on the status and successes of land trusts since its founding in 1982.
The 2015 National Land Trust Census was developed in cooperation with the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy and with the generous support of the U.S. Forest Service.
More than 700 land trusts from 48 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands responded to the 2015 Census – thank you!
