Make Secure Donations Through MoonClerk
Below are a few ways you can work with KLT. For more information on these and other conservation resources, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 785-749-3297.
A voluntary partnership and legal agreement between a landowner and a conservation organization that limits future development of the land. Conservation Easements can be a cost-effective tool for land owners to realize their long-term vision for their land, while retaining ownership and receiving support through federal income tax benefits.
Like any valuable asset, land requires care and management to permanently preserve its important qualities. KLT and the landowner work together as stewards of the lands to be preserved. KLT also monitors protected lands over time, as the land changes ownership, to assure that the conservation values of each unique property remain in place.
When holding a conservation easement on private lands, KLT can provide landowners with information and expertise on restoring lands with threatened or real impacts to the conservation values of the land.
For some landowners, the best method of guaranteeing that the land they love will be forever protected is to donate the land to a qualified organization, like KLT.
Donations can include all or just a part of the landowner’s property. KLT offers some programs with funding to purchase conservation easements. For more information on donating land for conservation purposes, please call the KLT office at 785-749-3297.
KLT works with other conservation organizations in Kansas and nationally to encourage local, state and federal governments to adopt land use and management decisions that will assure responsible growth that is compatible with the protection of our State’s most valuable natural and historic resources and farm and ranch lands.
