The Black Swamp Conservancy

We are a land trust dedicated to protecting agricultural land and natural areas, now and for future generations, through land conservation agreements. We do this to preserve the rural heritage, unique natural habitats, and lakes and streams of northwest Ohio.

By protecting our valuable land and water resources, we hope to support healthier communities with strong, sustainable economies including agriculture and ecotourism.

As a nonprofit organization we rely on the support of landowners, donors, and partnerships with other conservation organizations. We strive to be a wise investment for our supporters, whether they are giving us their land, time, or money.

We would like to thank the National Center for Nature Photography and Art Weber, who allowed us to use many of the photos that appear on this website. For more information about the Center and Art, click here.
