Preserves for People
Pines and Prairies Land Trust is protecting special parcels of land so that all people may hike, observe wildlife, and enjoy the plants, animals, beautiful views, natural waters, and historic legacies of our communities.
If you own a special property that you would like to see preserved, please ask about our conservation easement and land donation programs. Learn about how it can benefit you, your family and community.
Conservation easements are voluntary agreements between a land owner and land conservation organization like PPLT. The two work together to limit certain types of intensive development so that the property stays protected...forever. All the while, the landowner continues to own and live on the property, practicing agriculture, wildlife management or simply to recreate. Donated land is protected and managed by PPLT and is shared with the public for day use or special events, research or other programs.
Land and conservation easements can be donated or purchased. We work with federal, state and local groups to achieve the maximum benefit from conservation programs in our region.
