With this Annual Report, we hope to give you a fresh look at your land trust and
community trails organization, remind you of all we have to celebrate, and take a look
at the challenges of the future.

Gallatin Valley Land Trust is dedicated to a vision of healthy, vibrant communities,
populated by active and engaged citizens who appreciate their heritage and approach
their future with creativity and a profound respect for the natural resources and beauty
that are both an endowment from our forbearers and our children’s inheritance.

We are a private, member-supported organization that depends on engaging your
