tomorrow and beyond

Placing a conservation easement on your property is only the beginning of the conservation legacy; the Palouse Land Trust assumes the responsibility and legal right to make sure that the terms of the easement are upheld in perpetuity in order to preserve the conservation values of the land.  As an Accredited Land Trust, we make a commitment to visit each of our easement properties every year and to work with all future owners and third parties to monitor the conditions of the land and correct any violations of the easement, should they occur.  Because of this commitment, the Land Trust usually asks for a monetary contribution from the original easement donor to offset the costs of future stewardship activities.  

For more information or to talk about your specific circumstances, please don't hesitate to call and talk with our Conservation Projects Manager, Nick Norton.  All inquiries are confidential.  We value a landowner's right to decide what works best for his or her family, so there is never any pressure.
