All are nonprofit land conservation organizations. We work collaboratively on many projects, however we all have different mission foci. The Nature Conservancy focuses on native ecosystem protection and management, while the Trust for Public Land generally works as a bridge organization to help obtain lands that are then transferred to either a public agency or another nonprofit organization for management or accessibility in the public interest. Land trusts have a wider range of protection interests, including cultural and agricultural lands, coastal lands for shoreline protection and public access, view-sheds, etc.
