How PLC Protects Land

The most common tool PLC uses to protect land is the conservation easement. These voluntary legal agreements help landowners permanently protect their land from future development.

However, PLC protects land using a variety of flexible tools, depending on landowner interests and the conservation values of the land. We always work with willing landowners, using conservation easements as well as land donations, and purchases. We also work with state and local partners to make a larger impact through joint conservation efforts.
