Did you know that Rhode Island land trusts protect more than 57,000 acres? Or that the majority of land trusts are run entirely by volunteers? As such, land trusts have come to rely on the Rhode Island Land Trust Council to advocate for, provide technical support, and develop responsible policy and action plans.

The Council owns no land itself, so that means every dollar raised directly impacts the resources and tools that we make available to land trusts. By supporting the Council you are increasing the capacity of all land trusts in the State.

Your support means that you are helping to:

  • Promote responsible land use and stewardship
  • Advocate for sound land conservation policy
  • Expand programming like Land Trust Days and the RIWalks Challenge that showcase land trust properties and programs
  • Ensure future generations have access to open spaces

Land trusts provide fun for the whole family, everyone benefits from time in open and protected spaces.

Your donation is tax-deductible! The RI Land Trust Council operates as a project of TSNE Mission Works (TSNE) a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. TSNE is the Council’s fiscal sponsor.
