Who We Are

Allegheny Land Trust (ALT) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization helping local people save local land in the Pittsburgh Region. Protecting more than 2,000 acres of green space in Allegheny and Washington Counties, ALT works to protect lands of significant value to our region’s unique scenic landscape, biodiversity, and water quality. In addition to those categories, ALT protects land for the use of current and future generations to enjoy for recreational and educational purposes.

As of this year we are proud to report:

2,100+ Acres of Protected Green Space
574 Volunteers Logged in 2016
43,000 Trees Protected in 2016
