In Southcentral, outdoor recreation is a part of our lifestyle. One of Great Land Trust’s focus areas is enhancing appropriate access to local public lands for everyone. We work to connect individual neighborhoods to public open space in urban areas throughout Anchorage and the Mat-Su, and we are helping to identify areas for new connector trails to public lands and lands that could become new community parks.

In Alaska, it can be hard to tell where private lands end and public lands begin. Great Land Trust works with partners, private and public landowners to ensure access to our favorite trail hikes and coastline beaches, fishing holes, hunting and berry picking spots. Great Land Trust works with landowners, agencies and communities to ensure permanent access to our public lands.
