The outlook for land trust work currently is brighter than that for federal land and water conservation jobs. Land trusts are going strong right now, and the entire land and water conservation segment, of which land trust and preserve management is a part, is growing at a steady rate annually. The LTA National Land Trust Census reports that local, state, and national land trusts protected 37 million acres as of 2005—an increase of 54 percent from 2000.
