The land trust works with interested landowners to establish conservation protection of their property. Several land protection options are available including:
- Conservation Easements - a legal agreement between a landowner and a land trust or government agency that permanently limits uses of the land in order to protect its conservation values. Preparation of an easement requires careful drafting of documents and maps, baseline documentation, and professional appraisal. The land trust assumes long-term responsibility for ensuring that the easement terms are followed.
- Donation of Land - The land trust will consider accepting gifts of land that provide a significant conservation benefit and meet legal requirements. Donation of land may be made through a Will or Trust.
- Land Purchase - The land trust prefers to conserve land through donation of an easement or an outright gift of land. Sometimes, however, the land trust is asked to purchase land or an easement on the land in order to protect important conservation values.
