Our Mission

GreenTrust Alliance (GTA) is a nonprofit conservation organization and land trust dedicated to partnerships and innovative funding streams that accelerate large scale conservation, preservation and ecosystem restoration efforts in the Mid-Atlantic region. To accomplish this, we work with partners to identify large sites with impaired but reparable habitat damage, and then manage the funding, land protection, design, permitting, and construction and crediting of the resulting land protection and restoration projects.   

Our Vision

We are the Mid-Atlantic region’s pre-eminent facilitator of both small- and large-scale leading-edge restoration, green infrastructure and conservation projects through:

  • Application of innovative technical and financial techniques and approaches to large scale habitat restoration, conservation, and preservation that meet funder objectives, regulatory requirements, and our mission.

  • Connecting local land trusts and other mission-driven local strategic partners in the non-profit realm to complex markets for restoration and land conservation

  • Assisting agency partners with identifying, siting and delivering large scale restoration and conservation projects to maximize landscape sustainability in the region.

  • Enabling resilient landscapes and communities by blending the strength of private capital, public funding and leading-edge technical capabilities to advance more quickly good environmental restoration results
