The region’s largest land conservation organization, the Natural Lands Trust has saved more than 100,000 acres of land in its 60-year history. Since 1953, they have worked to restore and protect healthy habitats for native plants and animals, clean watersheds for people and wildlife, unspoiled areas for public enjoyment, and the beauty of our regions’ natural lands for generations to come.
