We combed through thousands of project pages on this website, reviewed archived feature stories here and in past issues of Land&People, and surveyed staff and board members to create this list of 50 TPL projects, programs, and resources without which America’s communities would look much different. Not to pat ourselves—and you, our donors—on the backs, but this is a rather impressive and inspiring list of accomplishments, don’t you think?

Imagine how much more we can do in the next 50 years with your continued support.

All of these places—and many more—are protected thanks to Trust for Public Land supporters. Join us in our mission to bring the profound benefits of equitable access to the outdoors to millions of people across America.
