Land Trust 101: Conservation Easements

Land trust help landowners protect their lands through conservation easements –voluntary agreements to place permanent restrictions on how privately managed restrictions on how privately owned properties are used to ensure that important and unique natural features are protected. For over three decades, Jefferson Land Trust and North Olympic Land Trust have made profound impacts by working with communities and individual land owners across the Olympic Peninsula to protect places that define our local ways of life.

Learn why land trusts offer a unique land protection model, how conservation easements work, and how communities can impact land conservation. Learning Our Landscape is a virtual program through the Jamestown S’Klallam Library, the Institute of Museum and Library Services, and the North Olympic History Center and will feature Erik Kingfisher, Director of Stewardship for Jefferson Land Trust, and Tom Sanford, Executive Director of the North Olympic Land Trust.
