Monitor, steward and enforce your conservation easements for perpetuity

Baseline documentation is the key to making this possible.

The Land Trust Standards and Practices require every easement must have a baseline documentation report signed at closing. Baseline reports establish the condition of the property at the date the assessment was donated or purchased. A good baseline report is an essential reference document that sets the stage for proper monitoring and defense of your conservation easements in the future. Come join us to learn what every good baseline report should contain, how you can create this documentation, how to ensure your baseline can be admissible as evidence in court, and what to do if you haven't been creating baselines at the time of acquisition.

The instructor for this training is Judy Anderson of Community Consulting. Judy coaches organizations and teaches courses on organizational development, community-based outreach and fundraising, conservation easement drafting and stewardship, public lands design, and community-based inclusive conservation.
