A land trust is a special kind of nonprofit that protects lands for a wide variety of purposes, including natural resource value, community benefit, open space, outdoor activities, agriculture, and more.

Land trusts utilize a variety of legal and financial tools, such as conservation easements, to help landowners protect their lands, farms, and ranches. Learn more and read our FAQs about what land trusts do both in Missouri and across the country.

We are the land trust community in Missouri. We partner with landowners – farmers, ranchers, and nature enthusiasts – to protect the resources of their land.

We strengthen Missouri conservation by building connections and advancing policies that help protect our natural world—our forests, water, wildlife, open space, and family farms —for all people, forever.
