Teton Regional Land Trust

As a community-based conservation organization, we work with private landowners to conserve agricultural and natural resources that are critical to the region’s communities – both human and wild. Through several avenues we are able to offer willing landowners options regarding their land and legacy.

TRLT was created in 1990 by a group of citizens concerned about the rapid loss of open lands in Teton Valley, Idaho. It has matured into a successful, well-respected land conservancy with a professional staff, diverse board of directors, an involved membership, and has expanded to serve a six-county region.

We have partnered with willing landowners to complete 137 projects with over 100 families and have helped protect through permanent conservation easement or fee title on over 32,000 acres in the Upper Snake River Watershed.

Though meaningful accomplishments have been made, thousands of significant acres remain vulnerable to the expanding development occurring throughout the region.

Our service area contains some of the most resource-rich private land habitats in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem and is experiencing some of the highest growth rates in the nation. This combination makes our work ahead both crucial and urgent.
