Lowcountry Land Trust’s sustained success in conservation over the last 35 years has protected more than 150,000 acres primarily through the acquisition of conservation easements. Conservation easements are a legal agreement entered into voluntarily by both the landowner and Land Trust. Within the easement is a promise, fulfilled by both parties, to protect land forever. The land remains the property of the landowner, and the easement stays with the land, regardless of sale or inheritance.
