Easement Monitoring Program

Stewardship: A Continuing CommitmentAnderson Lake 4

With each easement success comes a deep and permanent responsibility: we have promised to look after, or steward, the conservation protections placed on your land forever.To make sure that the provisions in the original conservation easement are being honored, the members of our stewardship staff visit conserved properties once a year.

Our stewardship managers and foresters are our connection with easement land owners. Building relationships with landowners—walking their land with them and working to address common concerns—goes a long way toward making sure that our conservation easements are upheld. 

These staff members are a trusted resource for landowners for a wide range of issues regarding our conservation easements. Examples of this work may include: responding to requests for help with ATV trespass issues; sharing their expertise on an invasive species threatening someone’s woodlot or streambanks;  or informing a landowner about a federal grant program aimed at wildlife habitat improvement and management.

As partners with landowners, we assume that landowners know what is best for their land, will do what is best by it, and unless proven otherwise, are acting with integrity and in good faith with us. This approach has paid off. The important natural resource values of the land we’ve conserved, such as agricultural soil, timber resources, or watersheds, have remained fully protected.
