For Land, for people

land trust for Louisiana exists to preserve & protect

Our lands and waters have played a crucial role in the unique history and vibrant culture of our state, hosting communities and traditions that can’t be found anywhere else.

As stewards of the land, we are responsible for protecting that legacy while preserving some of the most fragile and important ecosystems in the state. By working to permanently conserve Louisiana’s lands and natural resources, we are ensuring that our legacy is one of sustainability, respect, and love for the place we call home.

Forest & Natural Lands

Land Trust for Louisiana protects and restores natural lands throughout our state.

Working Lands

Louisiana’s agricultural lands are essential to supporting our economy, culture, and heritage.

Coastal Lands

Our coastal lands are fundamental to the health of our entire state. This is why we take every step to preserve their integrity and protect our coasts.

Inland Waters

Louisiana’s freshwater ecosystems – rivers, streams, lakes, and bayous – are home to countless fish and other species and give us drinking water and recreation.

Urban Green Spaces

We collaborate with partners in urban areas to ensure protection for green spaces utilized for recreation, water management, and other urban uses.
