Benefits of preservation

There are many benefits to preserving your land through a conservation easement with the Land Conservancy of Adams County. Here are just a few:

You can permanently preserve lands that are important to you.

You retain ownership of your property and are free to sell it or pass it on to your heirs.

Your easement is tailored to reflect your wishes and needs — including setting aside lots for future use.

You can still farm the land, harvest your timber, and continue to operate a rural business.

Public access to your property is not required.

Preserving undeveloped open space protects our watersheds, groundwater supplies, woodlands, wetlands, and agricultural lands.
