About IRLT

Our Mission


Our mission is to promote the preservation, conservation and improvement of natural resources and special places in Indian River County, Florida for the benefit of the general public and future generations.


Our Vision Today and for the Future:

  • Preserve environmentally important land and water resources
  • Protect scenic waterfront areas
  • Provide access for public recreation and education
Protected land provides important public benefits. Residents can learn about and enjoy our natural environment and local agricultural heritage, and they can take advantage of our protected waterways for boating, fishing, and abundant marine life.
