Help us extend our reach to restore urban green spaces, fortify a storm-ready Gulf Coast, and advocate for agricultural communities and land-based economy.
Any donation of $30 or more includes an LTL membership. Donations throughout the year accumulate toward the next level.
The Land Trust for Louisiana has an active Tradelands Program in which landowners who don’t hold valuable conservation lands, but want to support the Land Trust, can do so. In these cases, the landowner will donate a piece of property to LTL that may or may not be developed and can be used for any purpose – residential, industrial, or commercial. When donating, it is understood by both parties that LTL intends to sell the property and that the proceeds will go to the Land Trust to carry on the important work of conservation. Sometimes, the property – all or in part – does in fact possess important conservation values in which case the Land Trust will sell the property with a conservation easement in place to a conservation buyer. Such is the case with the Dowouis property in St. Tammany Parish.
