Lunch & Learn: Protecting Historic Places in Perpetuity: An Overview of Preservation Easements

Join us for lunch and learning about easements with experts from the state and national levels. This session will include an overview of the legal aspects of preservation easements, including the differences between preservation easements and local preservation laws and provide an overview of best practices in easement stewardship for easement practitioners, including monitoring, endowments, and enforcement. Speakers will discuss how the preservation community can use conservation easements as a tool to better protect large cultural landscapes and how to learn from and collaborate with the land trust community in your own state.
