ConservationTools.org is managed by the Pennsylvania Land Trust Association and made possible by the many organizations (credited throughout the website) that have provided content and financially supported the endeavor.
Eighty of Pennsylvania's most active conservation organizations count themselves as dues-paying members of the Pennsylvania Land Trust Association. These organizations elect the Board and set PALTA's purposes. The organizations in turn count 100,000 Pennsylvanians as members and contributors.
The Pennsylvania Land Trust Association was created by land trust volunteers and staff who recognized the need for an association that can focus on the broad needs of the conservation movement—to take on activities that no one organization could effectively handle or wish to handle on its own. The Association is a nonprofit organization registered with the Pennsylvania Bureau of Charitable Organizations.
The Pennsylvania Land Trust Association seeks to protect Pennsylvania's special places—the farms, forests, parks and other green spaces that people love—the places that help to ensure healthy, prosperous and secure communities. To increase the pace and improve the quality of land conservation work, PALTA helps land trusts and other conservation practitioners improve their effectiveness, builds public understanding, and advocates for better governmental policy.
