Landowner Resources

 Do you want to know more about protecting the land that you love, forever? Let us help you!

 Conservation Foundation works with landowners to find creative ways to conserve priority lands. Whether you want to keep your land or sell it, we are willing to explore with you the conservation opportunities. In the video above, Director of Land Protection, Debi Osborne, gives an overview of conservation easements which are an important way to protect land while keeping it in private ownership. We also work with landowners who wish to create a public legacy with their land. If you are passionate about the special place you own and want to see it permanently conserved, check out the resource documents below or contact our Land Protection team. They may be reached at 941-918-2100 or email Debi Osborne or Lee Amos.


In 2015, Congress enacted a powerful and permanent federal conservation tax incentive. Read more about how you may benefit.
