Our staff works with landowners to preserve the natural landscape and protect wildlife habitat, water quality, and historic resources while promoting traditional uses such as agriculture, hunting, and forestry.

A large part of our job is pursuing and securing properties with high conservation value (e.g., cultural, ecological, agricultural, and aesthetic), either with conservation easements or through fee title acquisition.

The Land Trust provides the following fee services:

  1. Presenting landowners with a variety of options for preserving their lands while retaining private ownership and control.
  2. Holding conservation easements for mitigation projects and accepting stewardship contracts.
  3. Providing a variety of professional and consulting services to developers and local municipalities and governments including open space planning, acquisition and management of open space properties, drafting, holding, and monitoring of conservation easements, and management and monitoring of mitigation properties.
  4. Providing professional stewardship and monitoring services for sensitive natural areas. Whether it is land held by others, or on land we hold in conservation easement, we can identify the critical ecological processes and components on a given site and implement adaptive management practices to meet protection goals.
