To protect, improve, provide access to, and promote the preservation of waterways, open spaces, and green places in Indian River County for the benefit of all today and tomorrow.


The Indian River Land Trust (IRLT) envisions Indian River County as a place where:

  • drinking water sources are protected and waterways are healthy and clean
  • aquatic life and wildlife have room to thrive
  • preserved waterfront and scenic areas provide a backdrop of beauty and tranquility

IRLT inspires and engages the community to protect and restore the health of the Indian River Lagoon, recognizing how critical the estuary is to the area's economic vitality and quality of life.
