Greenbelt Land Trust (GLT) is a nationally accredited land trust that works to conserve and protect in perpetuity native habitats, working lands and lands of natural beauty that provide a connection to the natural world for the residents of the Mid-Willamette Valley. Initially, when the organization was founded in 1989 it was created to develop a “greenbelt” around Corvallis and Philomath, providing residents easy access to nearby natural areas. Over the past 23 years GLT has expanded its service are to include Benton, Linn, Marion and Polk Counties, and has worked with willing landowners and private and governmental organizations to permanently safeguard over 1700 acres of farmland, forest, meadowland, and riparian areas across the Willamette Valley.
