When a land trust acquires land or conservation easements, it makes a solemn commitment to safeguard them forever. Solid systems, knowledge, relationships, sound judgment and resolve help land trusts fulfill that commitment even when challenged.
On November 10, 2022, the Michigan Appellate Court handed down a huge victory for conservation in deciding to keep a protected farm unified pursuant to a no division clause in the underlying conservation easement. The win sends a resounding national message that conservation advocates keep their promises to steward the land in perpetuity.
