Please join us for the first in a series of four workshops offered as part of the CLCC Model Conservation Easement Project.
Led by principal drafter of the CLCC Model Conservation Easement (CE), Attorney Linda Francois, and several members of CLCC's Model CE Working Group, including Attorney Molly Ackerly, this workshop is intended to provide an overview of conservation easements in Connecticut, add more detailed information about the conservation easement process using the Model CE and associated commentary as a guide, and allow plenty of opportunity for questions and answers. 
About the CLCC Model Conservation Easement Project
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.
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 was made possible through the generosity of
the Geoffrey C. Hughes Foundation.

CLCC Members: Free
Non-CLCC Members: $25
Lunch will be provided.
