LEGACYPROTECT YOUR LAND
If you’re interested in conserving your land for future generations, trust TennGreen Land Conservancy’s proven environmental stewards to guide you through your options.
Do you ever wonder what will happen to your land when you no longer own it? What will become of your favorite spot if your property is sold? Or, what will happen to the family farm once it’s passed on to the next generation?
As a landowner, you have the right to permanently protect your property and its natural character. Let’s work together to achieve your conservation goals!
OPTION 1: Conservation Easement
Conservation easements are voluntary legal agreements designed to forever protect your vision for your land and its important natural resources. Every easement is tailored to your unique conservation goals; you retain your rights to continue owning and using your land, to sell it, and to pass it down to your heirs.
An easement can include portions of your property or the entire parcel. It’s legally binding to all future owners, and your property will be monitored by TennGreen’s stewardship staff to ensure your conservation wishes are upheld in perpetuity.
WILDLIFE HABITAT CONSERVATION ASSISTANCE FUND
For qualifying landowners who need financial assistance to protect their land with a conservation easement, TennGreen Land Conservancy’s Wildlife Habitat Conservation Assistance Fund (WHCAF) can help defray some expenses.
Thank you to the Dan and Margaret Maddox Charitable Fund and Ginger & Dr. Dale Ensor for generously establishing this fund!
