This comprehensive volume thoughtfully examines the history and future of conservation easements, one of the fastest-growing methods of land preservation in the United States today. It includes articles authored by a range of conservation experts-geographers, attorneys, land trust directors, and others-on the background, scope, and use of conservation easements. PROTECTING THE LAND also includes sample conservation easements from across the country. A helpful reference for planners and others interested in new approaches to land conservation.
