Thousand Islands Land Trust


Since 1985, the Thousand Islands Land Trust (TILT) has helped safeguard the regional landscape of the 1000 Islands by accepting conservation easements, acquiring property and by establishing accessible areas available for public enjoyment.

Currently, TILT protects land through both fee-owned land and conservation easements, including important wetland, grassland and woodland habitat.

This includes preserves and over 40 miles of trails that are open to the public, year-round. During the year, we host our annual TILTreks & Talks, TeenTreks, KidsTreks and TILTKids Camp programs, which promote living, learning and conserving in the 1000 Islands.

TILT is organized and operated exclusively for exempt purposes set forth in section 501(c)(3), and none of its earnings may inure to any private shareholder or individual
