The Edmonton & Area Land Trust is a non-profit, regional land trust, established in 2007. We are oriented to conserving natural environments in Edmonton and the surrounding areas.
EALT works to protect land permanently. We do this in three ways:
- land acquisition through purchase or donation
- conservation easements
- education and stewardship.
EALT accepts donations of property and funds, purchases land, and helps landowners establish permanent legal restrictions to protect natural habitats.
EALT works in partnership with governments and other non-profit organizations to achieve our goals. We will also work with other partners, such as communities, schools, and individual landowners to enhance habitat protection on private land – making everyone part of the solution!
Edmonton’s population has increased by over 100,000 people (16%) in the last decade
