Drafting conservation easements that are enforceable, achieve their conservation purpose and satisfy legal requirements for federal tax benefits is a challenging task to undertake.  Choosing from among the many possible easement clauses can be confusing and knowing which ones are right for your land trust can be difficult.  This webinar will help land trust personnel who negotiate and draft conservation easements address several key points in crafting an easement that will last in perpetuity, including:

  • Recitals clauses
  • A Purpose clause that supports perpetuity
  • Essential clauses for tax-deductible easements
  • Tips on crafting easement restrictions

This webinar will help participants distill key information about conservation easement drafting to enable them to craft documents that achieve their intended conservation goals.
