We are locally grown and nationally known.
Western Reserve Land Conservancy, the largest land trust in Ohio, has preserved more than 550 properties and nearly 40,000 acres in our region. That’s approximately twice the size of Manhattan Island and larger than the Cuyahoga Valley National Park.
We work with private landowners, governments, park systems and others to strategically preserve land in our region. Our goal is to create, along with our conservation partners, an interconnected 400,000-acre network of protected property throughout northern Ohio. Imagine a preserved natural corridor that will allow your great great granddaughter to walk from the shores of Sandusky Bay to the farms of Stark County to the banks of Conneaut Creek without stepping foot on unprotected land. In addition, our Thriving Communities Institute is helping revitalize the region's urban neighborhoods.
We have protected land in 19 counties, preserving everything from sprawling farms to urban greenways.
