Conservation Easement Workshop

FRIDAY, 2pm to 5pm

Co-Hosts: Cibolo Conservancy and the Hill Country Alliance Hill Country Alliance

This workshop was designed to provide farmers, ranchers and other landowners with effective tools and resources to help them deal with the issues inherent in passing family land on to future generations. Many landowners are concerned about conserving those special natural features on their family-owned property and maintaining the productivity of their land. Landowners face the challenge of increasing tax burdens associated with land ownership, including the potential impact of estate taxes on their heirs.

A CONSERVATION EASEMENT (“CE”) is a tool available to help landowners steward and protect their land investment in the long term:
One of the most flexible and effective means to protect private property.
A voluntary legal agreement ensures a property will forever be conserved according to the landowner’s wishes. (No public access is required.)
Negotiated between the landowner and the land trust organization, (the responsible party for monitoring and enforcing the terms of the conservation easement agreement).
PRESENTATIONS: My Dream for My Land video, narrated by Bob Webster, Conservation Easement Basics and Income and Estate Tax Benefits of Donating a Conservation Easement, The Land Trust Role in the Conservation Easement Process, and Discussion with Conservation Easement Donors.
