Land Trusts in Texas Have Protected Over 1.6 Million Acres!

We are Texans, Working Together

to Conserve the Lands we Love

& the Water we Depend On.

Land and water conservation are essential to a healthy Texas. Our lands protect our water supply, provide habitat for our fish and wildlife, preserve our agricultural heritage, and improve our quality of life. Without those wide open spaces to experience and enjoy, Texas just wouldn’t be Texas.

Texas land trusts work to conserve Texas’ special lands and waters by permanently protecting them from development for the benefit of the people, economy, and wildlife of our state.

The Texas Land Trust Council (TLTC) is a non-profit, non-partisan organization working to build and support an active coalition to serve as a powerful voice for conservation in Texas. You can help protect drinking water, Texas’ iconic wildlife, and our rich natural and cultural heritage by becoming a member of the Texas Land Trust Council today.

Together, with Texans like you, we can ensure that the Texas landscape – rich in history, natural resources, breathtaking views and recreational opportunities – can be left intact for all of us today and for the future.

Please join us as a partner in our coalition for conservation—Join the Texas Land Trust Council today!
