Make Secure Donations Through MoonClerk

Frequently Asked Questions

What do you do, exactly?

KLT permanently protects Kansas lands of ecological or agricultural importance. We also protect Kansas lands of historic, scenic, and recreational merit.

We do this by crafting a customized conservation agreement for each landowner. Once the conservation agreement is in place, KLT works to ensure that the lands we are protecting stay protected— forever. KLT also works with other conservation organizations to preserve large, contiguous tracts of land.

What is a land trust?

A land trust is a private, nonprofit organization that conserves land by holding conservation easements on land or by purchasing land outright.

What requirements must be met in order to conserve land?

KLT carefully examines each candidate property to ensure that the land being protected fits within the organization’s mission. Visit this link for further information on KLT’s conservation priorities.
