Trust for Appalachian Trail Lands
Though much of the corridor along the Appalachian Trail has been
protected, more needs to be done. Development threatens some of
the picturesque vistas, water sources, wildlife habitat, and
sidetrail opportunities in all fourteen states.
The Trust for Appalachian Trail Lands provides a way for
individuals to join in the effort to protect the Appalachian Trail
landscape. A program of the Appalachian Trail
Conference, the Trust uses private gifts to acquire unprotected
lands and place them in public ownership.
- protects land adjacent to the A.T. corridor through land
acquisition by donation or purchase.
- is a voluntary land protection program dependent on
- cooperates with members of government land acquisition
programs and other privately funded land trusts that are active
along the trail corridor.
- has protected over 7000 acres of Trail-related land.
- has federal tax exempt status.
