The Niagara Land Trust conserves the natural heritage of the Niagara Peninsula today for future generations by acquiring and managing lands, or conservation easement on lands, for the public's long-term interest and benefit, while providing leadership in sustainable land stewardship.
In 2005 about 45 persons from many different communities across Niagara came together to discuss creating a land trust. Participating were farmers, foresters, environmentalists, consultants, accountants, lawyers, a politician, and persons from many other backgrounds. Their shared concern was conserving Niagara’s natural heritage for future generations to enjoy.
Four years later the Niagara Land Trust became reality as a not-for-profit charity. It functions completely separate and apart from government and is currently staffed entirely by volunteers with a wide variety of skillsets. It operates through several committees including Science & Stewardship, Land Review & Securement, Strategic Planning, Fundraising & Marketing, Nominations & Memberships as well as a Board of Directors. Its mission is to conserve and steward land permanently for the greater public good by acquiring or accepting donations of land and conservation easements.
