Conserve Your Land
Conservation is the choice to respect, protect, and wisely use land so that the benefits it offers people and wildlife continue undiminished over time. It is the choice to safeguard our water, care for wildlife, preserve productive farmland and forest, and maintain natural beauty. Everyday across the country, individuals and families make the conservation choice, entrusting their land or granting a conservation easement to a land trust or appropriate government entity.
Conservation easements limit construction and other activities on the land to achieve identified conservation objectives while allowing landowners to continue to own and use the land.
A land trust is a charitable organization that acquires land or conservation easements, or that stewards land or easements, for conservation purposes.
