Model Stewardship Cost Calculator

TEMPORARILY OUT OF SERVICE. DO NOT USE POSTED SPREADSHEET. Land trusts can use this tool to estimate the annual costs of stewardship for a conservation easement and the initial investment in a stewardship fund that will be needed to cover the costs. The calculator can be adapted to the needs of an individual land trust and to the specifics of a conservation easement. The guide "Costs of Conservation Easement Stewardship" (http://conservationtools.org/guides/86) explains many of the features and choices made in the calculator.

The calculator, which was first prepared early in the millennium, is updated upon occasion to reflect new information and advances in the field. The latest updates occurred in 2017.
