Welcome to our Gaining Ground Seminar, November 16th 2018. Please join us for a day of lectures and panel discussions, open and free to the general public, lunch is included and registration is required. This year the focus will be on all aspects of conservation easements, including their creation, the tax laws that influence their drafting, their valuation, the stewardship of land subject to an easement (including the use of management plans), and how courts (sometimes with the help of state attorneys general) have interpreted and enforced easements around the country. Also discussed will be the benefits of nonprofit land trusts partnering with government agencies and how the protection of open land benefits our economy.
