Landowners have a variety of reasons why they protect their lands, for it not only improves our environment and the health of our community, but it offers benefits that are far reaching for generations to come. If you are interested in preserving your heritage or conserving the natural resources of your land, but don't know how, read about the purpose of a conservation easement and learn about the tax benefits that may be available to you. Our guidebook, Northern Neck Conservation Easements, presents an overview of the process and shares some landowner stories. You may also want to watch a video, Our Special Place about the value of land conservation and the benefits of an easement. Our special project area of the Cat Point Creek watershed and adjacent lands, is a strategic conservation region and if you own land within the area and are interested in protected its vital habitat, please contact us and we'll be glad to provide you additional information.
