What are conservation easements and how do they benefit the Green River Valley?

Conservation easements are a method of private land conservation that may benefit a landowner and their family, while preserving local working lands, ecosystems and community character. They are entirely voluntary and established by a willing landowner on their property to protect conservation values, which can include agriculture, water resources, wildlife habitats, migration corridors, open spaces, cultural sites and more. They are legal agreements between a landowner and a qualified land trust, such as the Green River Valley Program of the Jackson Hole Land Trust (GRVP) here in Sublette County.
