What is a Conservation Easement?
A conservation easement is a method that allows conservation organizations (governmental or non-governmental) to purchase the development rights of a land owner.
This method allows land owners, that do not want to develop their lands, to gain monetary value for their lands without having to sell them to developers. Depending on the conservation easement, the land owner can still continue traditional land uses such as agriculture, ranching, and hunting.
Conservation easements also allow for the creation of large protected corridors for the protection of “listed species”.
BKI has assisted many large land owners acquire conservation easements for the their properties. we look forward to assisting more land owners take advantage of this land protection strategy.
