Board Member Challenge

We all benefit from national conservation initiatives – making the tax incentive permanent, a comprehensive training curriculum legal defense and more.

When you participate in the Alliance’s Board Member Challenge, you and your board will increase your land conservation impact by supporting conservation leaders who work nationally to strengthen land trusts. You'll also help advance a shared vision for local land protection.

See how it works and the benefits of becoming a member »
