Mission Statement:

Taos Land Trust's mission is to conserve land for the benefit of the communities, cultures and natural systems of northern New Mexico.

Primary Programs:

Conservation Easements--We work with private landowners to permanently protect family lands and ensure that they qualify for applicable tax and financial benefits, particularly low-income landowners who can make direct income through the New Mexico transferable conservation tax credit.

Public Lands--Partnering with other conservation organizations, we have secured the acquisition of nearly 17,000 acres of land now owned by the public and permanently protected.

De la Tierra a la Cosecha (From Earth to Harvest)--A collaboration with two other local nonprofits using decades of expertise and pragmatic approaches to promote profitable family farming, ranching, and local food security, which in turn helps sustain local land and culture.

Outreach and Education--Ongoing public education activities through community workshops and forums, radio programs, newsletters, brochures, newspaper articles, and our website.

Public Policy--We work on public policy initiatives at the local, county and state level to further land and water conservation and a sustainable agriculture.
