Purpose of the Trust for Public Land

The Trust for Public Land's (TPL) mission is to conserve natural areas and resources such as gardens, parks, play grounds, forests, heritage places and water. Though TPL works across all types of land conservation, they are segmented into five groups. These 5 groups play an important role in creating and conserving parks and playgrounds in the neighborhood for children.

Supporting agriculture, ranches and forests helps in preserving rural lifestyle. TPL also helps preserve natural scenic places and animals which are found in these places. Another area TPL focuses on is the heritage places which are of historic importance. TPL conserves waterways and helps to preserve the beauty of natural water.

TPL also helps to provide solutions to environmental problems. Some of their initiatives in this area include conserving land and water from natural disasters such as flood, fire, hurricanes, etc. Climate mitigation initiative includes preserving forests, deforestation and planting trees to increase absorption of carbon dioxide.

Since greenhouse gases is the major issue linked to climatic changes, any effort taken in this area will go a long a way in preserving our planet. TPL provides services such as technical assistance and conservation campaign services among others to identify and help raise funds by local, federal or other agencies to create parks and land conservation. They also buy land and create playground, parks and other natural areas.

These are then transferred to public agencies for future maintenance. TPL's award winning Greenprinting GIS tool helps identify vulnerable lands which need protection. It also helps in identifying places in communities where parks are needed most. TPL also helps in renovating playground and parks. It supports newly acquired lands with design ideas and maintenance. The design ideas are taken from people who will be the end users and this helps in getting the cooperation of the community into the mission of the organization.
