Every land trust is different and reflects the uniqueness and priorities of their community. Land trusts seek to preserve open spaces, natural areas, scenic character, watersheds, drinking water sources, farmland, forests, historic sites, and shorelines that uniquely define our communities. Collectively, land trusts are protecting the special places in our communities so that our heritage remains as our legacy for future generations.


The Rhode Island Land Trust Council promotes land conservation in Rhode Island by supporting the missions and operations of land trusts, fostering collaboration and advocating for sound land conservation policy.


The Council strives to:

Our work today will benefit generations to come.
