The Edward L. Rose Conservancy holds five easements on over 360 acres of land. We accepted our first easement in 2004 and our most recent in 2011. These easements represent the care and concern of individual landowners and their determination to see their land protected. These lands remain in private ownership and are not open to the public but are forever preserved for the benefit of the environment we all depend on.
The easements are tailored to meet the needs of each landowner and the specifics of the property they each protect. The Conservancy holds these easements and bears the responsibility for enforcing them. We do this through annual visits to the properties and regular contact with the landowners. We consider these landowners our partners in conservation and are very appreciative of their dedication.
