Conservation Options for Private Landowners

Countryside Conservancy provides advice to landowners who want to protect the natural resources and beauty of their lands forever. We work with private landowners to find conservation solutions using the following tools:

Conservation Easement: a legal agreement between a private landowner and a land trust that permanently and legally restricts the types of subdivision, development, and activities allowed on a property. more...

Land Donation: A landowner may donate title to conservation-worthy land to Countryside Conservancy. more...

Remainder Interest: Landowners may donate a remainder interest in land while reserving a life estate for themselves. more...

Bargain Sale: Landowners may sell conservation-worthy land to the Conservancy for less than its market value in a "bargain sale." more...

The Conservancy is always happy to talk to landowners about conservation options for their lands. Please call us at (570) 945-6995 or contact us here to talk to any of our staff.
