As a Big Thicket non-profit, donations to the Big Thicket Natural Heritage Trust are tax deductible.

​​​​​About how to save the Big Thicket through Texas Land Trusts and donations to the Big Thicket National Preserve.

Big Thicket Natural Heritage Trust​

​​​​​Established in 1999, the  Big Thicket Natural Heritage Trust has worked to "Save the Big Thicket" piece by piece.  To date, the small non-profit has raised over $100,000 and acquired over 241 acres. The lands become Donations to the Big Thicket National Preserve of the National Park Service.  The Trust also facilitated the acquisition of 500 acres to the Preserve by funding a required Environmental Assessment.  Negotiations are currently being conducted to protect lands in Orange County through a conservation easement. 

Texas Land Trusts are the creative answer

to today's conservation challenges!
