Pennsylvania Land Trust Association
The Pennsylvania Land Trust Association envisions a Pennsylvania where people know that their treasured green places will endure. We envision a Commonwealth where the lands that guarantee our water quality are safeguarded; where outdoor recreation opportunities abound; where our productive farmlands and forests are conserved, securing our food and wood supplies; and where natural areas are protected.  We envision future generations enjoying the beauty, the water, the productive lands and wildlife we enjoy today.
The Pennsylvania Land Trust Association seeks to protect Pennsylvania’s special places—the farms, forests, parks and other green spaces that people love—the places that help to ensure healthy, prosperous and secure communities. To increase the pace and improve the quality of land conservation work, PALTA helps land trusts and other conservation practitioners improve their effectiveness, builds public understanding, and advocates for better governmental policy.
