Land Protection and Stewardship
GTA is a cooperating land trust with Maryland Environmental Trust and a Land Trust Member of the Land Trust Alliance, and is currently applying for Land Trust Accreditation. We can serve as the long-term steward for restoration and easement properties and have experience in doing so with properties and easements. In addition, we have experience in acting as a short-term steward of properties or easements being transitioned to public agency ownership.

Flat Swamp Preserve
This 386-acre project site in North Carolina restored the site’s former hydrology and forest vegetation. These restored forested wetlands now provide a significant improvement to the water quality, biodiversity and habitat of this degraded section of the Middle Neuse River Watershed.
