Legacy Land Conservancy
Established in 1971 as the first local conservancy in Michigan, the Washtenaw Land Trust protects the local lands that sustain us all. The Land Trust has permanently protected 3,711 acres of nature and farmland, here where you live. Washtenaw Land Trust is proud to be an accredited land trust, recognized by the national Land Trust Accreditation Commission. In 2009, the Washtenaw Land Trust changed its name to Legacy Land Conservancy, to reflect its regional scope.

Sustainable Business Practices
The Legacy Land Conservancy protects natural areas and working farms, here where you live - Washtenaw, Jackson, and Ingham counties. The Land Conservancys help for the environment goes beyond its land conservation mission. They are proud to help the environment by reducing, re-using, and recycling as much as they can. That's why, for example, they haven't purchased new office furniture in years they say it's amazing what you can find if you ask! The Land Trust uses double-sided printing, recycles all print cartridges, uses re-chargeable batteries to reduce toxic waste, reuses folders and other office materials, prints on recycled-content paper, turns off lights and computers when not in use, and much more. The Land Trust thanks the many local individuals, families, and businesses who support the important work of protecting local open spaces for future generations.
