Landowner Application Form

Thank you for your interest in a conservation easement with the Eagle Valley Land Trust! The Eagle Valley Land Trust needs to evaluate both the property and the project itself to determine if we are the best organization for the project. If we believe we are not the most appropriate organization, we will do our best to direct you to another organization that would be better suited to meet your needs and those of the project.

This form is designed to help Eagle Valley Land Trust understand the basics of your property and your goals for the proposed conservation easement. After receiving and reviewing your completed form, we will then schedule a site visit to get to know you and your property, if we think our goals may be aligned.  At that time, we will describe the conservation easement process in more detail.  After a site visit, our staff will discuss your project, and if we decide to move forward, we will present it to our Stewardship and Projects Committee for review and, if appropriate, a recommendation to the Board of Directors for official project approval. 

Please take the time to carefully read and complete this application to the best of your ability. We understand that you may not have all of the necessary information and we are happy to work with you to complete it. Please know that all of the information you provide will be kept confidential within our organization.  We will only share the information with relevant project consultants (such as appraisers, baseline preparers, etc.) if you decide to move forward with a conservation easement.  If we determine another organization may be a better fit for the project, we will ask your permission first before sharing any of your information with another conservation easement holder. 

Choosing to conserve your property is a significant decision which should be given appropriate thought and consideration. Eagle Valley Land Trust highly recommends that landowners hire independent legal representation and tax professionals to assist with the conservation easement transaction.
