Preserving Family Land Workshop - July 27
What is it that you love about your property? Is it a stream or an oak savanna? Maybe it's a farm that has been in the family for generations. Everyone has a unique reason for wanting to preserve his or her land. If this is something you've been thinking about, we invite you to attend this seminar to learn more about some ways you can preserve your land.
A conservation easement is a voluntary way landowners can control future development of their land. For example, you may choose to restrict subdivision and building of more houses on your land. Or you might wish to preserve an oak savanna or a prairie from being destroyed.
You continue to own, enjoy, hand it down to your kids and eventually sell the land, but the restrictions you set up in the easement go along with the title to the property.
We'll have landowners on hand who have been through the easement process to answer your questions. There will be short presentations by legal, financial, and estate planning professionals. And we'll cover how a conservation easement may provide potential income and estate tax deductions for the landowner.
Join us on July 27th at Soulful Prairies, a beautiful rural property that was preserved with a conservation easement in 2014. The seminar runs from 10 am until noon. There will be a short tour of the property for those that wish to stay.
