Who We Are

Great Land Trust is a nonprofit organization founded by Alaskans in 1995 to conserve lands and waters essential to the quality of life and economic health of our communities.

GLT works in voluntary partnership with landowners, agencies, communities and other partners throughout Southcentral Alaska with a focus on the Municipality of Anchorage, Mat-Su Borough, Prince William Sound and Kodiak.

GLT’s focus is on land conservation for community benefit – we work to protect wetlands that provide clean drinking water, to conserve habitat for salmon and other wildlife, and to build trails and establish access to the outdoors and open space.

Our core values are community engagement, stewardship, passion, collaboration, innovation, and adaptability.
