Become a Land Trust Advocate

Every year, the federal government makes key decisions on the tax incentives for land or conservation easements; on the rules that 501(c)(3) organizations must follow; on funding for a host of federal and state land protections; and about grant programs that can help you protect lands in your community.

Members of Congress and other public officials rely on their constituents for informed opinions on proposed legislation, policy issues and regulations. The Land Trust Alliance can tell them what the issues are, but only YOU can make them care! Advocates Alerts provide the information you need to make a difference with policymakers.

The Land Trust Alliance is committed to renewing the push for permanence in 2015, and we will keep you updated about opportunities to benefit conservation, land trusts and the communities they serve.
