Alachua Conservation Trust is a nonprofit regional land trust  created to address the need of protecting critical natural lands from development and degradation in Florida.

Over the course of 30 years ACT has been instrumental to facilitating the conservation of over 53,000 acres of Florida land. This includes the direct purchase and protection of over 19,700 acres. We currently work across 16 counties, own 4,313 acres, and collaborate with private landowners to protect an additional 3,214 acres through conservation easements. We serve our community and home by protecting and preserving natural spaces, creating opportunities to interact with the environment, and teaching the next generation through environmental education programs. 


Together we can conserve, restore, and celebrate florida land
