Model Conservation Easement

Few conservation easements look alike because few properties are the same, and few landowners want exactly the same provisions.

Conservation Easements are customized to meet the conservation and financial goals of individual landowners.  The Model Conservation Easement is the ‘kitchen sink’ — designed by Eagle Valley Land Trust — to guide you through the process.  You’ll be able to consider all benefits when creating an easement. The Model Conservation Easement is reviewed annually to ensure it is up-to-date with current regulations.

This guide establishes the benefits of the easement on the surrounding areas and conservation value, including:

  • Recreation
  • Donation status
  • Site improvements
  • Resources management
  • Rights of Grantee and Grantor
  • Transfer of property
  • and much more
