Land Conservation Basics
PROTECTING YOUR LAND FOREVER
Across America, thousands of people are determined to conserve the places they value. Landowners have a deep connection to their land and know the immeasurable benefits undeveloped properties provide their communities: clean air and water, fresh food, wildlife habitat, local history, and scenic beauty. All too often these special places disappear forever because of development. Americans who want to conserve their land can turn to land trusts - non profit organizations that work with landowners interested in permanently protecting important open spaces.
