Land Donation and Conservation Easements
How Your Land Can Become A Part of The Preserve
Donated or bequeathed land that is appropriate to include as Wilderness Preserve property is held and maintained by the Wilderness Preserve. If a donor has specific wishes for the donated land, these wishes should be discussed with the Wilderness Preserve. Because the Wilderness Preserve is a non-profit organization, donated land may be deductible from federal income and estate taxes.
Conservation easements are cost effective ways of protecting land for special purposes, including scenic enjoyment, wildlife and watershed protection, and forest preservation. The easement places permanent limitations on use as determined by the landowner and the organization that will hold the easement. The easement becomes part of the title to the property. If IRS criteria are met, conservation easements are deductible as charitable contributions.
