A Conservation Cooperators Network connecting landowners with hunters and private land access seekers for the purpose of stewarding and enjoying
healthier lands together.

 What is Sharing the Land?

Sixty percent of all land in the United States is privately owned, and in certain regions, up to 95% of wildlife habitat, hunting grounds, and foraging areas are privately held.


Consequently, private landowners play a pivotal role in the success of various conservation efforts. Thoughtful and active private land stewards develop comprehensive management plans for their properties, requiring substantial time, financial investment, and labor.


A common sentiment among landowners is the acknowledgment that managing land is a demanding task.

We Believe in
Sharing the Land acknowledges the inherent value of access to private land. The rising costs of owning rural land, shifts in land ownership, a growing population, leasing of hunting rights, and increased interest in outdoor activities have made it increasingly challenging for non-landowners to secure permission for hunting, foraging, or recreation on private lands. While some landowners may be hesitant to open their properties to just anyone, many are open to sharing their land with individuals who demonstrate respect for the environment and a willingness to contribute to conservation efforts.
