A land trust is a nonprofit organization that actively works to conserve land by undertaking or assisting with direct land transactions - primarily through the acceptance of donations of land or land preservation agreements, and on occasion through the purchase of property. Land trusts vary greatly in scope and scale, but all of them share the common mission of working cooperatively with landowners to protect and conserve land for its natural, recreational, scenic, historic, or agricultural value.
