Conservation 

Easements

Sometimes, land that isn’t public is still in the public interest—a centuries-old family farm, a working ranch that includes important wetlands, or development areas with creeks and protected species. We work with landowners who would like to preserve the value they derive from the land while also honoring its value to the community.  As the Trust's portfolio of protected land grows, we continue to direct our attention towards the sustainability and stewardship of these areas by providing resources to landowners on conservation and stewardship practices and requirements.  We reflect our commitment to the sustainability and maintenance of the lands we protect with every action we take.
