Anatomy of a Conservation Easement – Using the Updated CT Model

1:15pm - 2:30pm
Room: Fayerweather - Beckham Hall
Intermediate Level

Ideal for newcomers or those needing a refresher, this workshop will provide an introductory overview of conservation easements, guided by CLCC’s revised model Connecticut Conservation Easement (CE). Intended for use by the state’s land conservation community, the model CE was developed with a goal of simplifying language as much as reasonably possible and permitting adaptation to a broad array of situations. There will be ample opportunity for Q&A and discussion.
