What is a conservation easement? A conservation easement is a voluntary agreement between two parties who share mutual goals for preserving a natural area. Working with The Nature Conservancy, you agree to limit or prevent certain types of uses on the property, such as the right to subdivide. Such stipulations must be followed by present and future owners of the property. The easement also details ecologically compatible future use, while ensuring your right to benefits such as hunting, timbering and farming. Most importantly, you retain ownership and traditional uses, while your land’s conservation values are safeguarded for generations to come. Since 1961, The Nature Conservancy has been working with private landowners to translate their land ethic into permanent protection of land and water habitats.
If you want to leave a legacy, you have an ally in The Nature Conservancy. Let us help you reach your goals; keep property in the family, manage your land strategically, enjoy good times, from hiking to hunting, gain revenue from farming or timbering, and create a lasting legacy.
