PA Land Trust Assn. Updates 2 Model Conservation, Stewardship Easements

The PA Land Trust Association recently finalized the text of two easements-- a conservation easement and a model environmental stewardship easement.

The Model Grant of Conservation Easement and Declaration of Covenants and is identical to the proposal posted in January. All users are strongly encouraged to adopt this change immediately.

The 2nd edition of the Model Access Easement for Environmental Stewardship is also available to help organizations secure long-term access to land for remediating the effects of abandoned mine drainage.

For the second edition, the model’s provisions have been modified to facilitate customizations of the model for other types of environmental stewardship projects. The model also has been updated to reflect changes in state law and received a host of miscellaneous improvements.

Visit PALTA's Conservation Tools webpage for copies of these easements and much more.
