Welcome to three new easements

Posted on January 23, 2018

This past December, the Georgian Bay Land Trust was delighted to welcome three new easements to our roster of protected properties. All three have been donated by individuals who are passionate about the environment, and wish to leave a legacy of conservation on Georgian Bay.

Easements are a wonderful way to ensure that the land you love will remain in its natural state in perpetuity, without actually transferring ownership to a conservation organization. Also called Conservation Agreements, they lay out a legal conservation plan for your property, which includes regular monitoring by a qualified organization. The Georgian Bay Land Trust currently administers 11 easements around eastern Georgian Bay, and we are always happy to meet with landowners interested in exploring options for their own property.
