FAST FACTS About Land Trusts

Did you know that

America loses two million acres of farms, forests and open spaces each year? And an additional 100,000 acres of wetlands are destroyed in the U.S. each year?

Land Preservation Trusts can help

Since 2000, private state and local land trusts like ours have worked to triple the annual rate of land conservation in the United States.

From 1995-2000 land trusts conserved an average of 337,937 acres of land per year. That pace soared to 1,166,697 acres conserved per year, on average, from 2000-2005.

The Killbuck Watershed Land Trust currently preserves more than 4500 acres of farm land, forests, wetlands and open spaces in Ashland, Coshocton, Holmes, Richland, Tuscarawas, and Wayne counties in Ohio.  We continue to work to conserve more land each year.

This unique property, identified as a site for native Ohio prairie plants, is being managed by scientists, environmentalists and teachers in our area who are interested in maintaining and developing this site as a unique location for rare plants.
