Land Trust for Louisiana is a 501(c)(3) locally based land conservation organization. Our mission is to preserve valuable natural lands in rural areas and urban communities of Louisiana through donations, purchases, and conservation servitudes.
We are a grass roots based land trust in Louisiana and the only one of its kind in our State.
We work cooperatively with local communities, landowners, businesses, and other non-profits to achieve many goals. By working with us, our partners are able to protect river banks, manage storm water, create wildlife corridors, protect habitat for migrating birds, and much, much more. We also help to create greenways and blueways, and to provide much needed open space for people to work and play. We are often an option for private landowners to preserve their family lands and achieve personal conservation goals, with some tax benefits available.
We are comprised of local financial experts, tax attorneys, environmental professionals, land owners, and area residents who want to protect valuable land, both natural and agricultural.
We are not a government organization. We work cooperatively with local governments, land owners, and other such agencies as needed.
Land Trust for Louisiana is guided by the Land Trust Alliance’s Standards and Practices. The Land Trust Alliance is our nation’s conservation organization with over 25 years of experience working with the national conservation community.
