Please join us as we welcome Ray to our Annual Dinner & Meeting!

Ray Herndon’s talk will be accompanied by Land Trust for Louisiana’s (LTL) annual report on its accomplishments, land acquisitions and future plans.  Since its beginning in 2004, LTL has acquired nearly 4,000 acres of Louisiana’s native landscapes and agricultural properties via permanent conservation easements in numerous Louisiana parishes that will be protected forever.  Learn about the prospective property easements that LTL is working on and hopes to have acquired before the end of the year.  The Land Trust continues to seek and work with private and public landowners interested in perpetual land protection.

Whether through contributions, volunteering, donating land easements, stewardship, partnerships or joining one of our committees, please come and find out how you can help preserve and protect the rural areas and urban communities within our beautiful state of Louisiana. 

All are welcome!  Please bring a friend and let us share our mission!  A buffet dinner will be served!  There is no charge for the event, but reservations are required.  Please call (985) 542-5006 or email your RSVP to
