About Us

The mission of Northern Prairies Land Trust is to enable private landowners in South Dakota and Nebraska to conserve lands for habitat preservation, agriculture, ranching, water resource protection and enhancement, and cultural and historical protection. NPLT works with private landowners one-on-one to provide long-term, legally sound conservation strategies to protect the natural and economic elements of their land. Our primary tool for accomplishing our mission is the perpetual conservation easement. With a conservation easement, a landowner is able to protect the unique values of certain lands for all time.
