"Conservation Easements: A Tool for Protecting Natural Areas and Working Woodlots on the Chignecto Isthmus"
 Thursday April 2nd 2009 (7pm - 9:30pm), Crabtree Auditorium, Crabtree Bld, Mt Allison University, Sackville NB 

 A conservation easement is a legal agreement that ensures a property will be managed in perpetuity according to the landowner's wishes.  Easements are one of many tools available to landowners for protecting their land or ensuring it is sustainably managed.  Easements can be an important way to help conserve rivers, forests and wetlands - supporting clean water and clean air and providing habitat for wildlife.  


The purpose of this session is to enable participants to understand the process of conservation easements, including their tax implications and financial benefits.  A special focus will be on creating easements for working woodlots.     


Presenters include Margo Sheppard from the Nature Trust of New Brunswick, George Fullerton and Marc Spence from the New Brunswick Community Land Trust, Susan McIssac of McIssac Darragh Accountants and Paul Chamberland from the Canadian Wildlife Service.


Continuing Education Credits available for Woodlot Owners 


The workshop is free of charge. For more information and to register contact:
