West Virginia Land Trust

The West Virginia Land Trust (WVLT) is a member supported non-profit organization whose sole purpose is to protect West Virginia’s natural lands and scenic areas. Incorporated in 1995 the WVLT continues to be West Virginia’s only statewide land trust. To date our organization has protected over thousands of acres throughout West Virginia. Currently there are over 17,000 acres protected statewide through voluntary conservation easements.

Land is a resource that is owned by individuals, but enjoyed by many. When it is overdeveloped or misused, we all suffer. The WVLT works with landowners to protect the natural values of their property to ensure that the scenic beauty of West Virginia will be maintained for future generations.

The West Virginia Land Trust Saves Land by:

  • Accepting voluntary gifts of land
  • Accepting financial contributions for members and sponsors donors and helps fund our activities
  • Working with landowners to establish voluntary conservation easements on their property
  • Educating the public on land conservation in West Virginia
