Protecting priority properties through voluntary conservation easements

Conservation

Workgroup

Over 100 landowners have already protected nearly 10,000 acres of land in Jefferson & Berkeley Counties. The Conservation Workgroup is tasked with prioritizing the most valued lands to focus our conservation efforts. Using computer mapping software and their specialized experience, they work to identify the best-of-the-best potential conservation easements that will have the greatest impact on protecting drinking water supplies. They also provide assistance with conveying that technical information to Collaborative partners and the general public.
