While Montana nonprofit land trusts operate under fairly consistent goals and missions, land trusts differ in where geographically they work, their conservation focus and their project scope. Full contact information for the 12 MALT members is provided here, and you’re invited to browse through their websites and social media, and contact them to learn more about their project priorities, engagement with landowners and communities, and breadth of their conservation efforts.

You’ll find nearly all of Montana land trusts have received accreditation from the Land Trust Accreditation Commission. The Commission conducts an exhaustive and extensive review to validate the professional, financial and transactional practices of land trusts as part of the accreditation application and approval process. An accredited land trust is among the best of the best land trusts in the U.S. Montana is top in the nation for the number of conservation easements held by accredited land trusts and the percentage of conservation easement acres stewarded by accredited land trusts.
