What's a Land Trust?

Depending on your property and goals, you may choose to work with Landmark Conservancy to place a conservation easement on the property, sell or donate the property to the Landmark Conservancy, or work with Landmark to convey the property to a government agency or municipality for public use.

What is a Land Trust?
Land conservation, in all its forms, is essential to the health and beauty of Wisconsin. Land trusts are non-profit organizations that help protect land for public benefit. “Land trust” or “Conservancy” are terms used to describe the conservation organizations that own land, hold conservation easements and work in pursuit of permanent land protection.
What do Land Trusts protect?
Land trusts permanently protect important natural, recreational, scenic, historic and working lands. Among the great strengths of land trusts is their community focus: protecting local swimming holes, scenic features and open park space that is important to the landowners and the people who live there.  Land trusts work to protect the special places that make Wisconsin home.
How do Land Trusts work?
Land trusts use a variety of tools to achieve their mission and help landowners protect the conservation values of their property. Land trusts can accept donations of land and conservation easements, and sometimes purchase land with significant conservation and recreation values.
Who manages the Land Trust?
Once a conservation project has closed, land trusts hold the perpetual responsibility to manage the lands they own and to uphold the terms of any conservation easements they hold. In addition, many land trusts work cooperatively with other conservation partners by acquiring land in partnership.
