FIT | First, check to make sure that your land is within our service area. (See map.)
INFORMATION | Next, help us answer this question: “Why is it important to conserve this land?” Before contacting us, please be prepared to provide us with your property location, description of natural features, land use history, current land use, and an idea of what your conservation goals are.
CONSERVATION VALUES | Our conservation team will look at the land you are interested in conserving through various lenses to help us decide to move forward. Factors like zoning and other regulations, proximity to protected lands, ecosystem types, soils, and geology, as well as potential public benefits of conserving the land (clean water, viable farmland, recreational access), are considered.
OPTIONS | If it seems like a good fit, we will work with you to determine the best land protection tool to pursue and then begin a due diligence process that will include obtaining a professional appraisal, completing a title search, doing an environmental assessment.
