Conserve your land
Land conservation is a way to protect the land that you and your family own and cherish, while leaving a legacy for future generations. Permanently conserved lands preserve declining natural habitats for wildlife and plants, and save working lands—the farms, forests, and ranches that are an integral part of our region’s rural character. In addition to leaving a lasting legacy, you may be eligible for property and federal tax benefits.
Does My Land Qualify?
Southern Oregon Land Conservancy is especially interested in conserving lands located within our six Priority Areas (see Where We Work) , large properties (300 acres or more), and high quality farmland (20 acres or more). In order for land to be considered for a conservation easement or possible acquisition, it must meet several conservation criteria and be approved by our Board of Directors.
To start a conversation about conserving your land, please contact Kristi Mergenthaler, Stewardship Director.
