Mississippi River Trust Updated:03/2021

The Mississippi River Trust (MRT), a charitable, nonprofit conservation organization established in 2002, focuses its work on habitat conservation, conservation education and conservation policy.

We encourage landowners in the Lower Mississippi River region to donate land and interests in land for conservation purposes. We also acquire and hold title to land and conservation interests to improve and protect water quality; to enhance and protect wildlife populations; and to improve local economies through nature-based recreation.

Our primary tool for land conservation is a conservation easement. It is an alternative to selling land for development. A conservation easement allows a landowner to retain ownership of the land, protect important environmental or historical assets of the land from future development, and obtain certain tax advantages
