Heartland Conservation Alliance

Host Craig Lubow talks to Jill Erickson, Executive Director of Heartland Conservation Alliance about issues and projects the organization is currently working on.

Heartland Conservation Alliance is an urban land trust so that we can protect lands identified in regional plans. We are currently focusing our efforts in the Blue River Watershed. Land trusts protect land in a variety of ways. We can hold conservation easements, own land and help manage or steward lands.

Founded in 2012 by a group of citizens who care deeply for the beautiful places in our city, Heartland Conservation Alliance protects natural areas for the enjoyment and benefit of all. Kansas City is home to hundreds of beautiful places. Luckily, it is also home to hundreds of dedicated individuals, organizations, and government agencies protecting, restoring, and caring for our region’s natural resources.
