Empowering People to Protect the Ozarks Forever

The Ozark Regional Land Trust is a non-profit conservation land trust operating throughout the Ozark region, which includes portions of Missouri, Arkansas, Illinois, Kansas, and Oklahoma. ORLT's mission is to empower people to protect the natural resources of the Ozarks forever.

This is accomplished through various methods, including conservation easements and nature preserves. Since its founding in 1984, ORLT has protected more than 25,000 acres, including extensive hardwood forests, river frontage, caves, springs, working farmland, and urban greenspace. Please contact us if you would like to get involved with this work.
