Support your Local Land Trust / Conservancy

Your local island-based land trust or conservancy is at the heart of the conservation efforts on your island.  With the support of their community - people like you - these groups are leading children's outdoor programs, teaching landowners how to be better stewards, and leading the charge to protect some of the most loved places on the islands.  You can support your local land trust by donating directly to them, or donate to the Opportunity Fund and help the Islands Trust Fund support the most urgent local projects in the islands today.
