The Northwest Arkansas Land Trust is a nonprofit, non-governmental conservation organization that was founded in 2003 in response to the rapid development of our region. The land trust provides local, voluntary and permanent land protection services to landowners and municipalities who wish to forever conserve the special places that define our region. The purpose of the land trust is to protect quality of life in Northwest Arkansas, including clean air, clean water, wildlife habitat, abundant scenic beauty, local food supplies, recreational opportunities and our natural heritage, for the benefit of the community and the many generations to come.
The Northwest Arkansas Land Trust is an Accredited Land Trust. This mark of distinction recognizes a select number of land trusts that have met national standards for excellence.
