Lake Superior Land Trust Partnership

The overarching goal of the Lake Superior Land Trust Partnership (LSLTP) is to protect our shared land and water resources in the Lake Superior Basin by strengthening the capacity and coordination of the land conservation community. This Partnership works to:

  • Identify and actively protect important natural and scenic areas around the Basin
  • Leverage resources for increased land protection
  • Facilitate land protection information/data sharing among public and private organizations
  • Communicate the benefits of land conservation and foster awareness of conservation options
  • Create an informed and effective land trust partnership to share talents, tools and knowledge in ways that benefit all member organizations
  • Undertake projects in areas not served by a land trust

Keweenaw Land Trust was a founding member of the LSLTP and is committed to the goals of the Partnership. To help people learn more about the work and value of land trusts, the LSLTP produced an outreach publication called In their Own Voices: Land Conservation in the Lake Superior Basin. This collection of stories explains how private landowners have worked with conservation organizations to accomplish important projects in the Lake Superior Basin, as told by the people directly involved. This series of publications explain the benefits and outcomes of bequests, conservation easement donations, land donations, working forest easements on commercial forestland, bargain sale of land, and retained life estates. If you are a landowner who would like to learn more about how you might conserve your land from others who have already done so, please contact us to request the In their Own Voices packet.
