Kachemak Heritage Land Trust

Mission:
To preserve, for public benefit, land with significant natural, recreational, and cultural values by working with willing landowners

Kachemak Heritage Land Trust (KHLT) is a non-profit organization, established in 1989 to preserve for public benefit, land with significant natural, recreational, or cultural values by working with willing landowners on the Kenai Peninsula.

Across America, more than 6.2 million acres of land have been protected by over 1300 land trusts -- local and regional organizations that are saving dwindling open space through cooperative voluntary action.

Property owners have worked with land trusts to protect ranches, ocean shores, wetlands, scenic views, farms, wildlife habitat, river corridors, and trails - land of every size and type that has special conservation, historical, or open space value.

Landowners choose from a variety of protection tools. The property may stay in private ownership and use, or may be transferred to the land trust. In every case, the way in which the property is protected depends on the wishes of the landowner and the natural values of the property.

Kachemak Heritage Land Trust was established as Alaska's first land trust.  Since its inception, KHLT has helped to preserve many acres of wildlife habitat, historic and cultural sites, recreational corridors, and urban open space on the Peninsula through easements and donations of land.
