Conservation Easements


Landowners wishing to preserve unique natural resources forever (such as wetlands, forestland, native prairie, etc) may do so by granting a "conservation easement" to the NRD.
The NRD currently holds 19 conservation easements over more than 1,400 acres of private land.

Contact the NRD if you own land you would like to see preserved in a natural state.
