Most land conservation projects take 1 year to complete. However, we know that sometimes when a special place is threatened, time is of the essence. If you are interested in working with us to protect your land, please contact us and request an application packet.

2. Holding conservation easements for mitigation projects and accepting stewardship contracts.
3. Providing a variety of professional and consulting services to developers and local municipalities and governments including open space planning, acquisition and management of open space properties, drafting, holding and monitoring of conservation easements, and management and monitoring of mitigation properties.
