Land Trusts and Wildlife Crossing Structures

A Toolkit Detailing How Land Trusts Can Contribute to Highway Infrastructure Projects for Wildlife

Land Trusts And Wildlife Crossing Structures ToolkitAre you interested in better understanding the critical role that land trusts play in increasing wildlife crossings across the nation? Are you curious about how land trusts already work with transportation-related projects?

The toolkit has the intention to inform and support land trusts that are less familiar with connectivity and wildlife crossing efforts, and includes many diverse examples and links to allow for further examination.

This toolkit includes:

  • Exploration of the many ways land trusts can play a vital role in wildlife crossing projects
  • Suggestions for how land trusts can engage in projects
  • Funding sources for wildlife crossings
  • Public-private partnership opportunities
  • Best practices, lessons learned, and examples from land trusts around the U.S.
