Model CE Training Series: The Nuts and Bolts of Conservation Easements

Led by principal drafter of the CLCC Model Conservation Easement (CE), Attorney Linda Francois, this workshop is intended to provide an overview of conservation easements in Connecticut, add more detailed information about the conservation easement process using CLCC's Model CE and associated commentary as a guide, and allow plenty of opportunity for questions and answers.

About the CLCC Model Conservation Easement Project

Launched in 2014, the goal of the CLCC Model CE Project is to strengthen the quality and viability of conserved lands in Connecticut by:  (1) creating a statewide model conservation easement template for use by the land conservation community; and (2) improving the knowledge, skills and abilities of the drafters and users of conservation easements through a comprehensive training program.  The 2014 Model is meant to be a starting point from which to build future model documents. Input received from the land conservation community in 2015 will help us to improve upon the next edition of the model planned for 2016.

CLCC's Model CE Working Group is comprised of attorneys and other conservation practitioners from around the state who got together to research and draft a conservation easement template, with a goal of simplifying language as much as reasonably possible and permitting adaptation to a broad array of situations.  

CLCC's Model CE Project  and 2015 training and education programs are made possible through the generosity of the
Geoffrey C. Hughes Foundation.
