IRLT Programs

Education and Advocacy

The Indian River Land Trust believes strongly in offering environmental educational opportunities for our members and the residents of Indian River County. We do this through our series of walking, boat and kayaking excursions on and about Land Trust owned properties and managed easements. As more conservation lands are protected, IRLT will continue to work with its partners to provide a variety of recreational opportunities on these unique properties.

IRLT also advocates for various conservation issues important to our county and the protection of its land and water resources. The Indian River Land Trust has endorsed an effort to launch a major constitutional amendment campaign for the November 2014 ballot. This important amendment creates stable, long-term funding for conservation programs like Florida Forever and Everglades restoration, ensuring that we safeguard our most treasured waters and lands for future generations. Additionally, IRLT is an integral part of the Alliance of Florida Land Trusts, a coalition of Florida land trusts working together to maximize our impact on land protection in each of our respective counties, as well as the Land Trust Alliance, the professional organization of more than 1500 land trusts nationwide.
