Our Mission:

The New River Land Trust (NRLT) is a local non-profit formed to protect the farmland, forests, open spaces and historic places in Virginia’s New River region. This service area includes the counties of Bland, Carroll, Floyd, Giles, Grayson, Montgomery, Pulaski, Wythe, and the cities of Galax and Radford. We preserve precious land by educating landowners, and other stakeholders in Virginia, about the benefits of voluntarily donating conservation easements on their land, protecting it for future generations. We also work with partners, including local governments, on larger land policy issues and other conservation programming. NRLT received accreditation in July of 2013 after a rigorous evaluation by the national Land Trust Alliance Accreditation Commission.

As the only American Heritage River in Virginia and one of only fourteen in the nation, the New River defines our region and supports our economy. Land conservation is critical as unprecedented development threatens our water supply, wildlife habitat, and the overall natural integrity
of the region.

Since 2002, the New River Land Trust has conserved more than 49,000 acres and over 25 miles of New River Frontage. As the only American Heritage River in Virginia and one of only 14 in the nation, the New River defines our region and supports our economy. Land conservation is critical as unprecedented develpment threatens our water supply, wildlife habitat, and the overall natural integrity of the region. NRLT joins with 1,700 other land trusts, including the Blue Ridge Land Conservancy, in protecting over four million endangered acres—making a major impact on the American landscape.
