Conservation Easements

easementThe Ojai Valley Land Conservancy protects about 200 acres of natural habitat through voluntary land preservation agreements called conservation easements. These easements can be donated by private property owners who choose to conserve all or part of their property in perpetuity. Property owners can enjoy significant tax benefits along with the satisfaction of knowing that their land has been preserved for generations to come in return for giving up the ability to develop the land in the future. Conservation easements transfer with the property during a sale or other disposition, ensuring that the land will be preserved forever.
