Countryside Conservancy uses two forms of protected lands: preserves and conservation easements. Preserves are lands owned by the Conservancy and managed to protect their conservation values. Many of these sites are open to the public. Conservation easements are legal agreements between the Conservancy and private landowners that restrict the types of subdivision, development, and activities permitted on the land. Lands protected by conservation easements remain in private ownership.
