FINANCIAL BENEFITS OF LAND CONSERVATION

Workshop on December 16 at Liberty Senior Center

December 11, 2009

LIBERTY – Save taxes, protect your property for future generations and play a key role in protecting the natural landscape. Sue Currier, Executive Director of the Delaware Highlands Conservancy, will present the: “The Financial Benefits of Land Conservation” on Wednesday, December 16 from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m.

The workshop will be held at the Liberty Senior Center, located at 119 North Main Street in Liberty.

Landowners will learn how to keep cherished lands in the family and protect the landscape in perpetuity. Accountants, lawyers, financial planners and realtors will learn how to help clients minimize estate taxes. Town officials will learn how to use conservation easements as an effective planning tool for their communities and they can receive two hours of NYS training credit (please check with your municipality).

“There is considerable value to the surrounding community when individuals protect their land and in recognition of this the Internal Revenue Service provides income and estate tax incentives,” Currier said, “The community benefits by protection of water quality, scenic views, wildlife habitat and working lands generating local revenue.”

Since 1994 the Conservancy has protected almost 12,000 acres of land by working with willing landowners in Sullivan and Delaware Counties in New York, and Pike and Wayne Counties in Pennsylvania. The program is free and open to the general public. Registration is required.
