Why conserve land?
TOOLS to preserve working landscapes & natural environments:
Conservation easements are a legal tool used to protect land and benefit landowners. They are a voluntary deed restriction and can be sold or gifted. Conservation easements do not convey the right of public access. Restrictions on land use run with the deed and there are stewardship obligations. It is a basic landowner’s right to conserve his property and limit land use.
