Give a gift today

help protect louisiana's tomorrow

Louisiana’s open lands and outdoor spaces are more important today than ever before. Each dollar you generously give to Land Trust for Louisiana is an investment in yourself, your family, and your community. Thank you for your support!

Donate Easement

Be a voice for your land

Are you a landowner interested in placing all or part of your easement under conservation? Read our Landowner FAQ answering common questions about conservation from the property owner perspective and then reach out to us directly to make your donation. 

Tradelands Program

Our active Tradelands Program allows landowners to support LTL even if they don’t hold land with conservation value. In these cases, the landowner can donate a piece of property to LTL that may or may not be developed and can be used for any purpose – residential, industrial, or commercial. When donating, it is understood by both parties that LTL intends to sell the property and that the proceeds will go to the Land Trust to carry on the important work of conservation. Sometimes, the property – all or in part – does in fact possess important conservation value, in which case the Land Trust will sell the property to a conservation buyer with an easement in place.
