Texas Land Trust Council

The Texas Land Trust Council (TLTC) is an association for Texas land trusts.  The Council was formed in the 1990s in partnership with the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. Today TLTC is an independent nonprofit organization that promotes the conservation efforts of more than 30 active land trusts in Texas.

The member land trusts have protected over 1.5 million acres of farms, ranches, wetlands, wildlife habitat, watersheds, and other important natural lands in Texas. TLTC provides numerous resources for landowners who want to conserve their land, including a land trust directory, an index of land trust professionals, a guide to conservation easements, and an annual educational conference open to any Texas landowner to attend.

Mission Statement

The Texas Land Trust Council encourages excellence in the Texas land trust community through collaboration, education and outreach.
