The Trust for Public Land (TPL) is a non-profit organization that "conserves land for people to enjoy as parks, gardens, and other natural places, ensuring livable communities for generations to come."[1] TPL works to ensure children have easy and safe access to a place to play in nature by creating parks, especially in inner-city areas, but they also conserve farms, ranches, forests, places of historic and cultural significance and watersheds.[2]

History

Founded in 1972, TPL has completed over 5,200 parks nation-wide, covering 3 million acres of land. The organization was founded by a group of real estate professionals, lawyers and financial experts. The TPL's Conservation Finance service was formed in the 1990s in order to help community organizers fund ballot measure campaigns. The Conservation Vision and GIS service was created to assist communities in locating the most crucial areas in need of conservation.[3] TPL has 30 offices across the country to serve community conservation needs.[1]

Leadership

TPL is governed by their board of directors while everyday operations are run by their leadership team.
