Protect Your LandEach decision to protect a property is a personal one. It involves the landowner's financial and tax circumstances, the land resource itself, and the owner's vision for the future of the land. Since every situation is different, the Finger Lakes Land Trust offers several ways of conserving the lands that make up the unique Finger Lakes Region.
For landowners who share the goals of the Land Trust, the options described here are a way to achieve a personal dream— that of forever protecting a special part of the landscape. Some of these conservation techniques involve project costs and long-term stewardship expenses. How these costs are covered varies based on individual project circumstances.
