The Trust for Public Land creates parks and protects land for people, ensuring healthy, livable communities for generations to come. The Trust for Public Land was founded in 1972 on the conviction that all people need and deserve access to nature and the outdoors, close to home, in the cities and communities where they live, as a matter of health, equity, and justice. While many conservation organizations set aside wildlands for biodiversity or habitat restoration, The Trust's founders sought to bring the benefits of parks and nature to the places, people, and communities that needed them most. The Trust for Public Land has protected more than 3.5 million acres of land, developed more than 2,000 miles of trails, and completed more than 5,400 projects across America. The Trust for Public Land has also helped states and local communities generate more than $79 billion in new public funds for parks and open space.

For thirty years, The Trust for Public Land has been working to connect land and people across the Southeast. The Trust’s accomplishments include supporting the vision and implementation of the Atlanta BeltLine and Martin Luther King Jr. National Historical Park. The Trust has worked to connect 30,000 residents of Chattanooga, Tennessee via the 25-mile South Chickamauga Creek Greenway. Current efforts include expanding Chattanooga’s linear network of parks and trails, a partnership with Atlanta Public Schools to convert schoolyards to community park spaces, and a bold vision to protect and create over 100 miles of greenway and blueway along the Chattahoochee River – featuring parks, trails, boat launches, campsites, and public amenities – that will link 19 metro Atlanta cities and seven counties to serve millions of people throughout the region.

The Trust for Public Land recognizes and values the differences that make people unique and cultivates an environment where cultural awareness, sensitivity, and integrity prosper with a workforce reflective of the diversity of the United States, The Trust appreciates the intrinsic correlation between diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts and overall performance quality at the department, local, and national levels, where the work culture facilitates the exchange of new perspectives, improves problem-solving by inviting different ideas, and creates a respectful, accepting work environment.
