About the Nassau Land Trust:
The Nassau Land Trust, incorporated in 2001, seeks to provide choices for landowners by working to find solutions that allow landowners to realize tax benefits and protect their real estate investments for the long term, while protecting the conservation values of their property. Our mission is to protect open space in Nassau County, Long Island by working with landowners and other interested parties to conserve land.
The Nassau Land Trust is a member of the Land Trust Alliance. Founded in 1982, the Land Trust Alliance is the national leader of the private land conservation movement, promoting voluntary land conservation across the country and providing resources, leadership and training to the nation's 1,600-plus nonprofit, grassroots land trusts, helping them to protect important open spaces.
We are always working to make our website a better resource for landowners interested in conservation options, and for Long Island land conservation in general. Jamaica Bay

NLT is a nonprofit, tax-exempt corporation that accepts donations of land and conservation easements. We fulfill our mission by reaching out to landowners and facilitating their use of land conservation techniques. We provide creative land-use choices that respect the rights of landowners and reflect their individual goals. We also educate those involved in land use — such as government officials, planners, accountants.
