Land Trust of Virginia
The Land Trust of Virginia partners with private landowners who wish to voluntarily protect and preserve their working farmland or natural lands with significant scenic, historic, and ecological value for the benefit of our community using conservation easements.
Conservation easements protect open space, farms, forests, rivers, streams, battlefields, vistas and historic sites in perpetuity. When a landowner donates a conservation easement, they maintain ownership of their land; they can sell it or pass it on to heirs. The land remains on the county tax rolls. What changes is that the land itself is protected from development forever.
Founded nearly a quarter century ago, the Land Trust of Virginia is a thriving 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that relies upon the generous support of our community and landowners to fulfill our mission. We are a trusted conservation partner, recognized and accredited by the Land Trust Alliance as a land trust that meets “national standards for protecting natural places and working lands forever.”
