In 1992 Andrew L. Johnson and a small group of professionals established North American Land Trust (NALT) with the primary purpose of preserving and managing open space with ecological, agricultural or historical significance.
Today, NALT works with a variety of partners, including individuals, corporate landowners, mitigation bankers, developers and municipalities, all over the United States to conserve vital land using Conservation Easements, steward properties with advanced monitoring techniques, and enhance land with Conservation Management Plans. NALT Conservation Areas protect wetlands, grasslands, coastlines, forests and fresh water habitat and the species that depend on them. The majority of these acres are privately owned, but many are dedicated to public use.
With roots in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania, we have an established focus area right here in Chester County, one that we are continually growing with the help of our dedicated landowners and partners. In fact, we are preparing to acquire a historical property called Brinton Run Preserve, which we will soon open to the public!
