Land Trust Alliance’s new Resource Center

Herring River Overlook

Last month, the Land Trust Alliance opened its new Resource Center.

It’s described as “a one-stop-shop for volunteers, staff and board members of land trusts and other conservationists to learn, connect and grow.” The Resource Library holds more than 3,000 documents, courses, events and other materials related to land conservation.

There’s too much there to give a detailed summary, but it’s easy to browse. The Library is interesting to explore and can be valuable to anyone interested in conservation.

The Alliance has nearly 950 land trust members across the country, including Wellfleet Conservation Trust. The members are  community-based, nonprofit organizations that work to conserve land by acquisitions or conservation restrictions. They also manage or restore land once it has been conserved.
