What We Do

earth  Land Trust Conservancy

Land trusts protect & preserve the natural environment by using conservation easements, mutual covenants, land purchases, donations, and volunteer efforts to permanently protect natural areas.  Couderay Waters Regional Land Trust works in northwestern Wisconsin to protect the intrinsic value of the northwoods.

lampConservation Easements

A conservation easement is a legal agreement between a landowner and a land trust or government agency that permanently limits use of the land in order to protect its conservation value.  You retain ownership, use and enjoyment of the land protected by the Land Trust.
