Conservation depends on the stewardship of private landowners. Public land managers cannot protect our natural resources because the vast majority of land in America is privately owned. Landowners who are serious about conservation share their experience, labor and resources with one another. They band together to get the best prices for the equipment and supplies they need to conserve their land. Landowner cooperatives collectively market timber and conservation credits. Finally, they fight for a stronger voice in public conservation policy. Landowner groups are listed below alphabetically by the type of association.
