A conservation easement is a voluntary, legal agreement that permanently limits uses of the land in order to protect its conservation values. Also known as a conservation restriction or conservation agreement, a conservation easement is one option to protect a property for future generations.
Join Botetourt County, Roanoke Valley-Alleghany Regional Commission, Valley Conservation Council, Blue Ridge Land Conservancy, Mountain Castles Soil & Water Conservation District, and Conservation Partners for an evening of education and conversation surrounding conservation easements.
