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. Founded over 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.”
