Welcome to
Legacy Land Trust Society

We are a registered non-profit charity dedicated to conservation and stewardship of significant lands—ecological, agricultural and heritage—in Central Alberta.

Based in Olds we work with landowners, interested individuals, communities, organizations and governments to conserve and nurture these lands for future generations.

If you’re keen on conservation we have programs that will get you close to the land.

Are you a writer, artist or photographer? A bird lover?

Or maybe you’re a hands-in-the-dirt person and would like to be involved in stewardship?

Check out our Programs.

And join our Friends Of Legacy to stay up-to-date with our activities and events.

Partnering with private landowners we’ve conserved thousands of acres, from boreal forest and wetlands to native grasslands and working farms and ranches.

Conserving these lands contributes to a future of healthy ecosystems, clean air and water, land for growing food and a reminder of our collective history on the land.
