Support Your Local Land Trust
Conservation matters. For many of us, saving the places that enrich our lives is reason enough to support land conservation. But much more is at stake. Ensuring that our natural areas are preserved is critical to the air we breathe, the water we drink and the food we eat.
Despite the deep connection that we all feel to land and the importance of land conservation to our health and communities, the bottom line is at the current pace, 50 million acres of land in America will be lost to development in the next 25 years. That’s over 5,000 acres a day.
Fortunately, this trend can be – and is - challenged through the collective work of America’s land trusts. Land trusts rely on donations to sustain their important work, and many are staffed entirely by volunteers. Take a stand for land by volunteering for or donating to your local land trust.
