Conservation Easement Success Stories:

What the Donors Say

There are many good reasons for donating an easement to the Hudson Highlands Land Trust–a desire to see a cherished parcel of land protected in perpetuity; a hope that the rural character of the Highlands will endure for future generations to enjoy; a desire to take advantage of the federal and state tax advantages that can flow from restricting development through an easement. For some, it’s a combination of all these considerations. Below, you can get to know some of HHLT’s conservation easement donors and the reasons why they decided to forever conserve their properties.
