Conservation easements provide many public benefits.


  • They help protect our region’s irreplaceable water resources, natural areas, wildlife habitats, agricultural lands, historic sites, and scenic resources.
  • These irreplaceable assets define our Bluegrass landscape and contribute to our quality of life; and the resources protected by conservation easements are valued by both residents and visitors of the Bluegrass.
  • Protecting farms helps maintain viability of the agricultural industry and its economic contributions to our community. The perpetual nature of an easement achieves lasting results not possible through zoning and other land use regulations.
