The Land Trust has worked with many landowners throughout the region to draft conservation plans to permanently protect the natural beauty, cultural resources, and biodiversity of their properties. Property owners willing to donate a conservation easement to insure that their land will remain as wild and scenic as possible in perpetuity should Contact us to explore their options.

Fee-simple acquisitions typically involve a land trust or public agency purchasing title to a property with conservation values. Landowners often use this method of land protection because they receive income from the sale and are assured that their land will be protected for long-term public benefit.

As a nonprofit land trust, we are a legal entity to hold conservation easements, accept gifts of land and tax-deductible donations. We also provide stewardship for already protected areas.

If you are interested in exploring a contribution of land or easement, please don't hesitate to Contact us.
