Working with the Marine Corps Air Station and the SC Conservation Bank, TPL placed a conservation easement on the 375-acre McLeod Farms, now owned by Beaufort County.

TPL helped the US Navy and Plaquemines Parish in Belle Chasse, Louisiana create a park that protects the Naval Air Station-Joint Reserve Base operations and the local water supply.

At nearly 76,000 acres, Fort A.P. Hill is one of the largest military installations on the East Coast, partially located in Caroline County, the third fastest growing county in Virginia.

The flourishing 1,400-acre property in King George County, Virginia referred to as Cedar Grove Farm is a perfect example of a victorious preservation project along the Potomac.

The Trust for Public Land helped create this pocket park just outside its Montpelier office at Court and Elm, and donated a conservation easement over the park area to the Capital Area Land Trust, ensuring that even if the property is eventually sold, the park will remain open to the public.

TPL conserved more than 5,700 acres of private forestland, known as Eden
Forest, in the towns of Johnson and Eden, Vermont. The property, which
borders four miles of the Long Trail State Forest, will continue to be
owned and sustainably managed for timber by the Green Crow Corporation.
