LandCAN

A Rare Approach to Conservation

The Land Conservation Assistance Network offers a wealth of information to help private landowners (farmers, foresters, ranchers, and others) manage their land and make sustainable decisions. Our resources empower them to protect the land and its wildlife, grow crops and produce products that generate income, while providing people across the nation with products that are part of everyday life.

For over 20 years, LandCAN has helped landowners steward and protect their lands by providing the largest, most comprehensive conservation platform on the web today, offering over 130,000 pages of solutions, services, and tools to answer the most pressing issues of today, FREE OF CHARGE.

We are able to do this because of the generosity of foundations, corporations and businesses, and individuals. Every day, your dollars are helping our private landowners to have easy access to the invaluable resources that help them protect their property.
