Safeguard Your Investment: A Case for Permanent Land Protection in Stewardship Plans and How a Local Partnership Can Help

You’ve worked year after year stewarding your land, investing valuable time, money, and energy into it. But what happens when the land changes hands? Will the next landowner share your conservation ethics, or will the next landowner decide to develop the land? What about the next landowner after that? And the one after that? Significant resources are invested each year in natural area management by private landowners, yet often little planning is done for the natural area’s permanent protection. Learn more about how a local partnership is helping permanently protect land, while keeping the land in private ownership. Why roll the dice with your beloved – and hard fought for – land? Protect it. Forever.
