To preserve natural habitats, waterways, agricultural lands, and open space in Southwest Ohio. We protect and restore natural lands with significant habitats that support native wildlife and create scenic vistas for public enjoyment, as well as agricultural lands suitable for the production of food, timber, or other cultivated or natural products. CLC acquires conservation interests in real properties which it then monitors and stewards in perpetuity. These include conservation easements, fee simple title, and other conservation interests which are acquired through donations and purchases guided by, and executed through, CLC. Once obtained, CLC monitors and otherwise stewards the properties and interests through regular oversight, periodic assessment and, if needed, protective action and legal defense.
The Land Trust Alliance powers our nearly 1,000 member land trusts to permanently protect and conserve the land we need and love, ensuring it will be there for today and tomorrow.
