We work carefully with each landowner or family to understand and protect their vision for their land. We utilize voluntary and permanent tools to protect their land for natural, recreational, scenic, historical and productive values. SALT offers several different options for landowners who wish to protect their land for future generations. . Below is an overview of frequently used conservation tools. Please contact us if you are interested in conserving your land.
We work primarily with voluntary conservation easements, which are legal agreements between SALT and local landowners that protect the conservation values of property in perpetuity. Contact us to find out more about conservation easements and the process of placing a conservation easement on your property.

In some cases SALT will accept donated property or even buy exceptional conservation lands if we can secure grant funds to do so. The donation may be set up in a way that allows someone to continue to live on the land or to receive income. Contact us to learn more about donating or selling lands to SALT.
