Our Mission

Arizona Land and Water Trust is committed to protecting Southern Arizona’s western landscapes, its heritage of working farms
and ranches, wildlife habitat and the water resources that sustain them.

For over 40 years, Arizona Land and Water Trust  has been a trusted partner to Arizona ranchers and farmers.

Working collaboratively with private landowners, public entities, and diverse community members, the Trust is committed to strengthening rural economies (both agricultural and nature-based tourism businesses) and to ensuring that private landownership, vital open spaces, and imperiled watersheds and their aquifers are protected today and tomorrow for Arizona’s families.

Arizona Land and Water Trust preserves Southern Arizona’s vanishing western landscapes by working with willing landowners to protect land that sustains our biological, cultural and agricultural heritage.


The Trust protects Southern Arizona’s desert rivers, streams and rural agriculture by entering into incentive-driven agreements that benefit river and riparian systems as well as the farmers and ranchers that rely upon those water resources.


The Trust brings together diverse partnerships, successfully leveraging multiple resources and interests, to implement landscape level conservation.
