The Mississippi Land Trust , is a charitable, 501(c)(3) organization that works with private, willing landowners to find ways to preserve Mississippi’s rich history, prairies, red clay hills, bottomlands and bayous, coastal savannas, longleaf pine forests, and scenic rivers and streams. Its primary tool for land conservation is a conservation easement, an alternative to selling the land for development. A conservation easement will allow a landowner to retain ownership of the land, protect important environmental or historical assets from future development, and obtain certain tax advantages.

The Mississippi River Trust is also a charitable, 501(c)(3) organization. It works in the same way as the Mississippi Land Trust. But instead of operating within the borders of Mississippi, it secures conservation easements with willing landowners throughout the Mississippi River Valley, primarily within the six states that border the lower Mississippi.

In addition, Wildlife Mississippi works with a broad range of other conservation partners.
