Welcome. We’re the Indiana Land Protection Alliance.
You can call us ILPA. 

We are a vibrant nonpartisan network of land trusts, conservation partners and community members. Our alliance champions land and water protection for all of Indiana. Collectively, we have protected more than 176,000 acres throughout the state: natural habitats, farms, forests, cultural sites and other special places that inspire curiosity. We preserve Indiana’s heritage, enhance quality of life for Hoosiers and reveal surrounding natural communities, which are far richer and more dynamic than the ones we’ve built.

With land trusts serving every county, you’re sure to find an opportunity to hike, bird-watch, kayak or simply immerse yourself in local nature.

Land and water conservation preserves our past, enriches our present and protects our future.
