THE GEORGIA-ALABAMA LAND TRUST

Conservation as Legacy

The Georgia-Alabama Land Trust, Inc. is a nonprofit conservation organization that actively works to protect and steward land. We are the largest land trust that services the Southeastern region of the United States. Since 1994, our mission has been protecting land for present and future generations.

Land trusts and conservation easements often help families keep their family farms. Most land trusts are community-, state- or region-based and deeply connected to local needs. They are well-equipped to identify land that offers critical natural habitat as well as recreational, agricultural and other ecological value.

Educational Seminars

Georgia-Alabama Land Trust has experienced staff members available to speak on a variety of conservation issues to enhance your meetings, conferences, or seminars. Their presentations can be customized to inform both public and private audiences. For more information, or if you would like to host, sponsor, or speak at a GALT event, please contact Katherine Eddins at 256-447-1006 or katherine@galandtrust.org.
