“Preserving the Legacy of Your Land”
Old Lyme Agencies Sponsor Land Conservation Seminar
On February 22nd
The Old Lyme Open Space Commission and Old Lyme Land Trust will co-sponsor a land conservation seminar and discussion to help property owners understand their options and plan for the preservation of their land. The seminar will cover the most up-to-date information on various land conservation strategies. The event will be held from 10:00am to noon on Saturday, February 22, 2014, at the Old Lyme Memorial Town Hall. The public is welcome.
“Preserving the Legacy of Your Land” will be presented by Attorney Amy Paterson, Executive Director of the Connecticut Land Conservation Council. Atty. Paterson has spent more than 30 years specializing in land preservation transactions and as an advocate for statewide land conservation. In her current role, she advises and guides local land trusts and other land conservation organizations in the long-term protection of Connecticut’s farmland, forests, wildlife habitats, watersheds and wetlands.
Conservation options for property owners will be described, including easements, sale or donation of land, and protecting land in the event of resale. Atty. Paterson will also speak about how to work with land conservation organizations to consider one’s personal conservation goals, financial situation, and family needs.
A discussion will follow the presentation.
