Alachua Conservation Trust:
The Natural Leader

Since 1988, Alachua Conservation Trust (ACT) has been protecting the natural, historic, scenic, and recreational resources in and around North Central Florida.


Together we can conserve, restore, and celebrate florida land 

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

Over the course of 30 years ACT has been instrumental to facilitating the conservation of over 50,000 acres of Florida land. This includes the direct purchase and protection of over 19,000 acres. We currently work across 16 counties, own 4,317 acres, and collaborate with private landowners to protect an additional 3,227 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.
