Introduction to Conservation Easements

What is a conservation easement? Few people–whether or not they work in conservation–understand this tool. You will come out of this session as one of those few. You will know the its strengths and weaknesses and what it can and can’t do. You will appreciate what obligations landowner and land trust will face and complications that may arise. You will understand factors that may point to using a different conservation tool. You will be walked through the questions and issues that must be resolved in applying a conservation easement to achieve particular conservation objectives for a specific property. The Model Grant of Conservation Easement and Declaration of Covenants will serve as a guide during the session.
